Abstract: Synchronized Elementary Net Systems are a model for systems consisting of events, conditions and subjected to generalized timing constraints. The constraints are quantified and are relative to some ``reference events'' such as clock ticks, meters, (multiform time). The partial ordering of event occurrences can be altered by ``timing'' constraints which induce additional precedences. This paper provides algoritms which compute delays beweeen event occurrences., The ``dioid'' algebraic structure is the underlying mathematical model. Applications of delays to some reachability problems are given.
Keywords: delays (in) synchronized elementary net systems; multiform time; timing constraint; dioid (algebraic structure); reachability problem.
