Satisfiability of CTL* with Constraints

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8052)


We show that satisfiability for CTL* with equality-, order-, and modulo-constraints over ℤ is decidable. Previously, decidability was only known for certain fragments of CTL*, e.g., the existential and positive fragments and EF.
