The reachability problem for vector addition systems with states (VASS) is shown PSPACE-complete when the dimension is two. This improves on a previously known doubly-exponential time bound established by Howell, Rosier, Huynh and Yen in 1986. The coverability and boundedness problems are also noted to be PSPACE-complete. Some complexity results are also given for the reachability problem in two-dimensional VASS and in integer VASS when numbers are encoded in unary.
