Timed-Arc Petri Nets (TAPN) is a well studied extension
of the classical Petri net model where tokens are decorated with real
numbers that represent their age. Unlike reachability, which is known to
be undecidable for TAPN, boundedness and coverability remain decid-
able. The model is supported by a recent tool called TAPAAL which,
among others, further extends TAPN with invariants on places in order
to model urgency. The decidability of boundedness and coverability for
this extended model has not yet been considered. We present a reduc-
tion from two-counter Minsky machines to TAPN with invariants to show
that both the boundedness and coverability problems are undecidable.
