400 CHAPTER 6 Logic synthesis in a nutshell mappings with respect to the pattern graphs of Figure 6.26. What is the optimum solution that you can get among different decomposition approaches? 6.30. (DAG Mapping as SAT Solving) Formulate the DAG mapping feasi- bility problem as a satisfiability problem. For the subject graph of Fig- ure 6.50 and the pattern graphs of Figure 6.26, what is the CNF formula representing feasible DAG mappings?
