Generalized Counters and Reversal Complexity
Reachability and LTL model-checking problems for flat counter systems are known to be decidable but whereas the reachability problem can be shown in NP, the best known complexity upper bound for the latter problem is made of a tower of several exponentials.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
Our NP upper bound extends known and recent results on model-checking weak Kripke structures with LTL formulae as well as reachability problems for flat counter systems.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
This is not the end of the story since decidability of reachability problems or model-checking problems based on temporal logics, can be regained by considering subclasses of counter systems (this includes restrictions on the instructions, on the control graphs or on more semantical properties).
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
In , a class of Presburger counter systems is identified for which the local model checking problem for Presburger-CTL⋆ is shown decidable.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
Moreover, in model-checking relational counter systems over LTL formulae is shown decidable when restricted to flat formulae (their translation into automata leads to flat structures).
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
Towards the complexity of temporal model-checking flat counter systems.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
In , it is shown that CTL⋆ model-checking over the class of so-called admissible counter systems is decidable by reduction into the satisfiability problem for Presburger arithmetic, the decidable first-order theory of natural numbers with addition.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
In this paper, we establish several computational complexity characterizations of model-checking problems restricted to flat counter systems in the presence of a rich LTL-like specification language with arithmetical constraints and past-time operators.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
We show that the model-checking problem restricted to flat counter systems in the presence of LTL with past-time operators is in NP (Theorem 7.4) by combining the above-mentioned proof techniques (we call this problem MC(PLTL[C], CF S )).
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
The verification problem we are interested in is the model-checking problem for PLTL[C] over counter systems, written MC(L, C ), where L is a fragment of PLTL[C] and C is a class of counter systems.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
It is known that for the full class of counter systems, the model-checking problem is undecidable; this is due to the fact that reachability of a control state is undecidable for counter systems manipulating at least two counters .
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
This is the case for flat counter systems, for whom it is proved in that the model-checking problem of some temporal logic more expressive than PLTL[C] is decidable.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
So, all our nondeterministic algorithms to solve model-checking problems on flat counter systems have a preliminary step that first guesses a minimal path schema.
Taming Past LTL and Flat Counter Systems
In order to check whether the ith bit of counter xi is one, we add repeatedly 2n+1−i to the counter.
