# Package sat

This page is about the SAT package. For a function list see Category:Package sat.

The basic idea behind this package is to make SAT solver, like CryptoMiniSat, usable in/with ApCoCoA.

This package allows to solve polynomial systems over ${\displaystyle \mathbb {Z} /2\mathbb {Z} }$ by first converting the system to CNF-SAT in DIMACS format and then using a SAT solver to solve the resulting conjunctive normal form.

Important: The SAT executable must be in packages/binaries and you must have the permissions to read and write in the directory packages/temp in the CoCoA plugin folder.
