Deciding whether a hypergraph is 2-colourable is a computational problem which contains the satisfiability problem in propositional calculus as a special case. We present a method for deciding the 2-colourability of hypergraphs. This method which we call H-resolution is closely related to resolution of boolean formulas and the relation between the two is investigated.
