Concurrency and nets : Advances in Petri nets by
K Voss(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Concurrency and Nets is a special volume in the series "Advances in Petri Nets". Prepared as a tribute to Carl Adam Petri on the occasion of his 60th birthday, it is devoted to an outstanding personality and his pioneering and fruitful scientific work. Part I (70 pages of over 600) presents the congratulatory addresses and invited talks that were given at an Anniversary Colloquium. The contributions of this part honor Carl Adam Petri and his work from many different perspectives. Part II is a collection of invited papers discussing various aspects of the theme Concurrency and Nets. These papers are contributed partly by researchers that were or are still associated with the Petri Institute at GMD and partly by researchers whose scientific work deals with Net Theory or related system models. The topics range from basic theoretical aspects to application oriented methods

Carl Adam Petri : eine Biographie by
Einar Smith(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book presents the life and works of one of Germany's most famous computer scientists, Carl Adam Petri. It is written in a vivid and entertaining manner, providing an indepth discussion of the background behind Petri's bestknown contribution to computer science, the Petri net. In this way the book can be read as a first introduction to nets, but it also covers the theoretical, physical and philosophical foundations behind nets, thus facilitating a comprehensive understanding of the wider range of Petri's works. The book is intended for readers with a previous knowledge in computer science, as well as for "interested nonprofessionals", who want to get to know a remarkable personality of contemporary science

Biological petri nets by
Edgar Wingender(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It was suggested some years ago that Petri nets might be well suited to modeling metabolic networks, overcoming some of the limitations encountered by the use of systems employing ODEs (ordinary differential equations). Much work has been done since then which confirms this and demonstrates the usefulness of this concept for systems biology. Petri net technology is not only intuitively understood by scientists trained in the life sciences, it also has a robust mathematical foundation and provides the required degree of flexibility. As a result it appears to be a very promising approach to mode

COMMUNICATION WITH AUTOMATA: Volume 1 Supplement 1(
)
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of automata is shown not capable of representing the actual physical flow of information in the solution of a recursive problem. The argument proceeds as follows: (1) The following postulates are assumed: (a) there exists an upper bound on the speed of signals; (b) there exists an upper bound on the density with which information can be stored. (2) Automata of fixed, finite size can recognize, at best, only iteratively defined classes of input sequences. (3) Recursively defined classes of input sequences that cannot be defined iteratively can be recognized only by automata of unbounded size. (4) in order for an automaton to solve a (soluble) recursive problem, the possibility must be granted that it can be extended unboundedly in whatever way might be required. (5) Automata (as actual hardware) formulated in accordance with automata theory will, after a finite number of extensions, conflict with at least one of the postulates. Suitable conceptual structures for an exact theory of communication are then discussed, and a theory of communication proposed
