Petri nets, process algebras and concurrent programming languages -- Petri nets and production systems -- Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Petri Nets -- Petri nets and digital hardware design -- An introduction to the practical use of coloured Petri Nets -- Protocol specification using P-graphs, a technique based on coloured Petri Nets -- Distributed algorithms for networks of agents -- Efficient performance analysis techniques for stochastic well-formed nets and stochastic process algebras -- Modelling and analysis of distributed software using GSPNs.
The two-volume set originates from the Advanced Course on Petri Nets held in Dagstuhl, Germany in September 1996; beyond the lectures given there, additional chapters have been commissioned to give a well-balanced presentation of the state of the art in the area. Together with its companion volume "Lectures on Petri Nets I: Basic Models" this book is the actual reference for the area and addresses professionals, students, lecturers, and researchers who are - interested in systems design and would like to learn to use Petri nets familiar with subareas of the theory or its applications and wish to view the whole area - interested in learning about recent results presented within a unified framework - planning to apply Petri nets in practical situations - interested in the relationship of Petri nets to other models of concurrent systems.
