It is well-known that model checking and satisfiability for P LTL arePSPACE-complete. By contrast, very little is known about whether there exist s ome interesting fragments of PLTL with a lower worst-case complexity. Such results would help understand why PLTL model checkers are successfully used in practice. In this paper we investigate this issue and consider model ch ecking and satisfiability for all fragments of PLTL obtainable by restricting (1) the temp oral connectives allowed, (2) the… CONTINUE READING
