Petri nets are formalisms for the modeling of discrete event dynamic systems (DEDS). The integrality of the marking and of the transitions firing counters is a clear reflection of this. To reduce the computational complexity of the analysis or synthesis of Petri nets, two relaxations have been introduced at two different levels: (1) at net level, leading to continuous [1]–[3] net systems; (2) atstate equation(or fundamental equation) level, which has allowed to obtain systems of linear… CONTINUE READING
