It was in old days, with our learned men, an interesting and oft-investigated question, "What is the origin of light?" and the solution of it has been repeatedly attempted, with no other result than to crowd our lunatic asylums with the would-be solvers. Hence, after fruitless attempts to suppress such investigations indirectly by making them liable to a heavy tax, the Legislature, in comparatively recent times, absolutely prohibited them.

Because it was generally believed that solving such problems through pure CNF encoding is inefficient, many authors have proposed specialized algorithms: Pseudo-Boolean solvers. However, it has been shown [3] that an appropriate CNF encoding method and a robust SAT solver can provide a competitive approach, thus allowing modern SAT techniques, e.g.
