  author={Kishor S. Trivedi and Hairong Sun},
Continuous-time Markov chains are used extensively to analyze the performance of various computer networks. However, constructing and solving continuous-time Markov chain is a tedious and error-prone procedure, especially when the studied systems are complex. Stochastic Petri nets and the corresponding software packages provide automated generation and solution to continuous-time Markov chains. This paper gives an overview of stochastic Petri nets. Two examples in ATM networks are presented and… CONTINUE READING
