Petri net is a powerful modeling tool for concurrent systems. Subclasses of Petri net are suggested to model certain realistic applications with less computational cost. Structurally weakly persistent net (SWPN) is one of such subclasses where liveness is verified in deterministic polynomial time. This paper studies the computational complexity to verify whether a give net is SWPN. 3UNSAT problem is reduced to the problem to verify whether a net is not SWPN. This implies co-NP completeness of verification problem of SWPN.
