Enumerating Maximal Consistent Closed Sets in Closure Systems

Abstract : Given an implicational base, a well-known representation for a closure system, an inconsistency binary relation over a finite set, we are interested in the problem of enumerating all maximal consistent closed sets (denoted by MCCEnum for short). We show that MCCEnum cannot be solved in output-polynomial time unless P = NP, even for lower bounded lattices. We give an incremental-polynomial time algorithm to solve MCCEnum for closure systems with constant Carathéodory number. Finally we prove that in biatomic atomistic closure systems MCCEnum can be solved in output-quasipolynomial time if minimal generators obey an independence condition, which holds in atomistic modular lattices. For closure systems closed under union (i.e., distributive), MCCEnum is solved by a polynomial delay algorithm [22, 25].
