Coloured Petri Nets : Basic Concepts, Analysis Methods and Practical Use. Volume 1, Hardback Book

Coloured Petri Nets : Basic Concepts, Analysis Methods and Practical Use. Volume 1 Hardback

Part of the Monographs in Theoretical Computer Science. An EATCS Series series

Description

This book presents a coherent description of the theoretical and practical aspects of Coloured Petri Nets (CP-nets or CPN).

It shows how CP-nets have been de veloped - from being a promising theoretical model to being a full-fledged lan guage for the design, specification, simulation, validation and implementation of large software systems (and other systems in which human beings and/or com puters communicate by means of some more or less formal rules).

The book contains the formal definition of CP-nets and the mathematical theory behind their analysis methods.

However, it has been the intention to write the book in such a way that it also becomes attractive to readers who are more interested in applications than the underlying mathematics.

This means that a large part of the book is written in a style which is closer to an engineering textbook (or a users' manual) than it is to a typical textbook in theoretical computer science.

The book consists of three separate volumes. The first volume defines the net model (i. e. , hierarchical CP-nets) and the basic concepts (e. g. , the different behavioural properties such as deadlocks, fair ness and home markings).

It gives a detailed presentation of many small exam ples and a brief overview of some industrial applications.

It introduces the for mal analysis methods. Finally, it contains a description of a set of CPN tools which support the practical use of CP-nets.
