Petri Nets with Marking-Dependent Ar Cardinality: Properties and Analysis

  title={Petri Nets with Marking-Dependent Ar Cardinality: Properties and Analysis},
  author={Gianfranco Ciardo},
  booktitle={Application and Theory of Petri Nets},
We discuss P/T-nets where the arc cardinalities are allowed to be marking-dependent expressions of various types, resulting in a hierarchy of subclasses. Some of the language and decidability properties of these classes have been studied before, but we focus on the practical implications in systems modeling, adding some new insight to the known results about the relative expressive power of the subclasses. We show how the p-semiflows of a P/T-net with marking-dependent arc cardinality can be… CONTINUE READING
