Title Modelling Ambient Systems with Coloured Petri Nets.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 27p
Personal Author A. Konios M. Pietkiewicz-Koutny
Abstract This paper is concerned with the formal modelling of Ambient Systems, focussing on the issues that emerge in their modelling using coloured Petri nets. A new class of coloured Petri nets, called Ambient Petri Nets (APNs), is introduced. Furthermore, a related step-modelling approach and its rationale are described. After that, the modularity and compositionality of the new class of Petri nets are discussed, and a method of composing APNs is introduced.
