The contribution is an optimal encoding for a set in a Reduced Ordered Binary Decision Diagram (ROBDD) when the number of elements in the set's domain is not a power of 2. The contribution includes a proof that the proposed encoding produces an ROBDD with the minimum number of nodes and discusses related open problems that are not solved by the proposed encoding.
Binary decision diagram, binary encoding, set representation.
