In this paper, we study the complexity of model-checking formulas of three important real-time logics (MTL, MITL, and TCTL) over restricted sets of timed paths. The classes of restricted sets of timed paths that we consider are (i) a single finite (or ultimately periodic) timed path, (ii) a infinite set of finite (or infinite) timed paths defined by a finite (or ultimately periodic) path in a region graph, (iii) a infinite set of finite (or infinite) timed paths defined by a finite (or ultimately periodic) path in a zone graph.
