Title: On the Reachability Problem for 5-Dimensional Vector Addition Systems
Authors: Hopcroft, John E.
Pansiot, J.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Jun-1976
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: The reachability set for vector addition systems of dimension less than or equal to five are shown to be effectively computable semilinear sets. Thus reachability, equvalence and containment are decidable up to dimension 5. An example of a non-semilinear reachability set is given for dimension 6. Keywords and phrases: Vector addition system, Petri net, semilinear set, algorithms, decidability.
