Modeling by Petri Nets

H. Kubátová


One specific model of a digital system in different types of Petri nets is presented. The formal definitions of the basic (black-and-white) Petri net, a place/transition net (P/T net), an arc-constant coloured Petri net (ac-CPN) and a coloured Petri net (CPN) are presented and explained on the basis of this example. Real models of dining philosophers, a producer-consumer system and railway tracks are described.
