Graphs, Automata, Petri Nets: From Sequential to Distributed and Concurrent Systems.

Brauer, Wilfried

In: Schwärtzel, H.; et al.: Advanced Information Processing, pages 15-28. Springer-Verlag, 1990.

Abstract: The author uses the metaphor of a group of cooperating individuals to firstly develop some part of classical theoretical imformatics from the point of view of specification of distributed and concurrent systems and secondly to introduce some more recent ideas. The author starts with finite sequential action systems, looks at the related automata, studies briefly forms of cooperation of such systems, and then introduces the non-classical idea of Petri nets (and a slight generalization) as a general model for distributed concurrent systems.

Keywords: distributed concurrent system; finte sequential action system.
