Fast deterministic algorithms for 3-SAT

The currently fastest deterministic algorithms for 3-SAT use the idea of covering {0,1}^n, the set of all truth assignments, by a number of Hamming balls of a certain radius, and then search each ball separately.

Using an optimal radius, this gives an O(1.5^n)-algorithm for 3-SAT. The currently fastest algorithm, due to Brueggeman and Kern, uses clever branching rules for searching Hamming balls, and runs in time O(1.473^n). We present a similar algorithm which is simpler and matches this running time.
