A coloured Petri net model for composite behaviors in multi-agent system
An important issue regarding the deeper understanding of social and organisational phenomena is the interaction and the linkage between micro and macro layers. The micro-macro-link deals with the emergent aggregation of processes and actions on the micro-level and with structures, rules and roles on the macro-level. This paper presents recent results of the “socionics” project ASKO, which is a fusion of sociology and computer science. Due to the interdisciplinary character of our project we use a graphical representation of our models: a special dialect of high-level Petri nets, namely reference nets, has been chosen, since it offers a simple and executable representation with a clear mathematical foundation.
