Analysis of service availability for time-triggered rejuvenation policies
In this paper we investigate the effect of three time-triggered system rejuvenation policies on service availability using a queuing model. The model is formulated as an extended ...

An Efficient Translation of Timed-Arc Petri Nets to Networks of Timed Automata
Bounded timed-arc Petri nets with read-arcs were recently proven equivalent to networks of timed automata, though the Petri net model cannot express urgent behaviour and the descri...

Fluid Stochastic Petri Nets Augmented with Flush-Out Arcs: A Transient Analysis Technique
Fluid (or Hybrid) Petri Nets with flush-out arcs are Petri net based models with two classes of places: discrete places that carry a natural number of distinct objects (tokens), a...

Discrete event representation of qualitative models using Petri nets
—The paper discusses how Petri nets may be used for the qualitative modeling of physical systems. The qualitative state of a system is represented by the marking of the net. The ...

A Prioritized Petri Net Model and Its Application in Distributed Multimedia Systems
—The achievement of media synchronization has been dealt with in the Object Composition Petri Net (OCPN) model and the extended OCPN (XOCPN) model. Yet these two models are not e...

Distributed State Space Generation of Discrete-State Stochastic Models
High-level formalisms such as stochastic Petri nets can be used to model complex systems. Analysis of logical and numerical properties of these models often requires the generatio...
