Petri nets (PNs) are widely used to model discrete event dynamic systems (computer systems, manufacturing systems, communication systems, etc). Continuous Petri nets (in which the markings are real numbers and the transition firings are continuous) were defined more recently; such a PN may model a continuous system or approximate a discrete system.

Autonomous and timed continuous Petri nets are defined. The autonomous model is presented as a limit case of autonomous discrete Petri nets and thus preserves most of the properties of classical Petri nets. A timed continuous Petri net, with constant firing speeds associated with transitions, is obtained from a timed discrete Petri net. This model has(More)
