The nets-within-nets paradigm provides an innovative modelling technique by giving tokens themselves the structure of a Petri net. These nets, called token nets or object nets, also support the object oriented modelling technique as they may represent real world objects with a proper dynamical behaviour. Between object nets and the surrounding net, called system net, various interaction mechanisms exist as well as between different object nets. This introduction into the field of object Petri… CONTINUE READING
