# What is the set representation of the ZDD for ϕ? [ Exercise Sheet 03 , FDD and ZDD 3 ]

The 2nd part of the question is to find the set representation for ZDD from FDD. I have done the first part and that is correct. But for the second part tool is giving "{{a,b,c};{a,c};{a};{}}" this answer, but when i tried, i got this answer "{{a,b,c};{a,c};{}}". I have added the steps that I have done. Could you please help me to solve this issue?  +1 vote

After you found the formula in RMNF (c&b) xor (a&c) xor (c) xor (b) xor true that is represented by the FDD, you want to construct the ZDD. To this end, you perform repeated Shannon decompositions as far as I can see. Shannon decomposition on c yields the following two

• (false&b) xor (a& false) xor (false) xor (b) xor true which is b xor true
• (true&b) xor (a& true) xor (true) xor (b) xor true  = b xor a xor true xor b xor true = a
The ZDD for not b is however the one that you can see as the low ZDD of the following correct solution (it shows the desired ZDD), i.e., it is supressing the negation of b (which ZDDs do) but has to make a redundant case distinction on the other variable a. by (142k points)

I understood . Thank you professor.
