An Approach to the Category of Net Computations.
In, 6th Nordic Workshop on Programming Theory, NWPT '94.
University of Aarhus, .
We introduce the notion of strongly concatenable process as a refinement of concatenable processes [DMM89] which can be expressed axiomatically via a functor $Q[-]$ from the category of Petri nets to an appropriate category of symmetric strict monoidal categories, in the precise sense that, for each net $N$, the strongly concatenable processes of $N$ are isomorphic to the arrows of $Q[N]$. In addition, we identify a coreflection right adjoint to $Q[-]$ and characterize its replete image, thus yielding an axiomatization of the category of net computations.
