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).
