Prenex Separation Logic with One Selector Field

Abstract : We show that infinite satisfiability can be reduced to finite satisfiabil-ity for all prenex formulas of Separation Logic with k ≥ 1 selector fields (SL k). This fact entails the decidability of the finite and infinite satisfiability problems for the class of prenex formulas of SL 1 , by reduction to the first-order theory of a single unary function symbol and an arbitrary number of unary predicate symbols. We also prove that the complexity of this fragment is not elementary recursive, by reduction from the first-order theory of one unary function symbol. Finally, we prove that the Bernays-Schönfinkel-Ramsey fragment of prenex SL 1 formulas with quantifier prefix in the language ∃ * ∀ * is PSPACE-complete.
