Dr. Patrice Bremond-Gregoire has over 30 years of experience in the software development industry, during which he worked in all diverse fields of software development, ranging from microcode for custom processors to operating systems, including compilers, networking protocols, as well as Internationalization and QA Automation. He is the founder and president of BGE, Inc. an Independent Software Vendor who specializes in business software integrated with Microsoft Dynamics ERP package. He also teaches Object Oriented Design and Programming and Symbolic Programming at Cal Poly Pomona. Patrice holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania.
ZDD or Zero-suppressed binary Decision Diagrams are a form of Binary Decision Diagrams where all zero (a.k.a. bottom) nodes are collapsed. ZDD can be efficiently represented and manipulated by computer programs. The purpose of this lecture is to provide a basic understanding of ZDD and how they can be used to solve combinatorial problems. It includes a definition of ZDD and an overview of the operations that can be performed on them, as well as examples of problems that can be efficiently solved using them.
