Properties of Distributed Time Arc Petri Nets

Nielsen, M., Sassone, V. and Srba, J. (2001) Properties of Distributed Time Arc Petri Nets At Foundation of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science, FST&TCS 2001.. , pp. 280-291.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In recent work we started a research on a distributed-timed extension of Petri nets where time parameters are associated with tokens and arcs carry constraints that qualify the age of tokens required for enabling. This formalism enables to model e.g. hardware architectures like GALS. We give a formal definition of process semantics for our model and investigate several properties of local versus global timing: expressiveness, reachability and coverability.
