On Linear Resolution

Sam Buss, Jan Johannsen

Abstract


We discuss the relationship between linear resolution, s-linear resolution and other fragments of resolution, including tree-like resolution, regular resolution and general resolution. We also discuss linear resolution with restarts. We present polynomial-size linear resolution proofs of the ordering tautology, and the guarded ordering tautologies. This shows that regular resolution does not simulate linear resolution.
