CTL+ Is Complete for Double Exponential Time

  title={CTL+ Is Complete for Double Exponential Time},
  author={Jan Johannsen and Martin Lange},
We show that the satisfiability problem for CTL, the branching time logic that allows boolean combinations of path formulas inside a path quantifier but no nesting of them, is 2-EXPTIME-hard. The construction is inspired by Vardi and Stockmeyer’s 2-EXPTIME-hardness proof of CTL∗’s satisfiability problem. As a consequence, there is no subexponential reduction from CTL to CTL which preserves satisfiability.
