Summary: We study model-checking problems on counter systems when guards are quantifier-free Presburger formulae, the specification languages are LTL-like dialects with arithmetical constraints and the runs are restricted to reversal-bounded ones. We introduce a generalization of reversal-boundedness and we show the NExpTime-completeness of the reversal-bounded model-checking problem as well as for related reversal-bounded reachability problems. As a by-product, we show the effective Presburger definability for sets of configurations for which there is a reversal-bounded run verifying a given temporal formula. Our results generalize existing results about reversal-bounded counter automata and provides a uniform and more general framework.
