One-counter processes are pushdown systems over a singleton stack alphabet (plus a stack-bottom symbol). We study the complexity of two closely related verification problems over one-counter processes: model checking with the temporal logic EF, where formulas are given as directed acyclic graphs, and weak bisimilarity checking against finite systems. We show that both problems are P NP -complete. This is achieved by establishing a close correspondence with the membership problem for a natural
more &raquo; ... agment of Presburger Arithmetic, which we show to be P NP -complete. This fragment is also a suitable representation for the global versions of the problems. We also show that there already exists a fixed EF formula (resp. a fixed finite system) such that model checking (resp. weak bisimulation) over one-counter processes is hard for P NP [log] . However, the complexity drops to P if the onecounter process is fixed.
