Abstract: We consider the category IP of Petri Nets with capacities (place/transition nets) and also a category A of automata with a collection of binary concurrency relations indicating when two events, in a particular state of the automaton, commute. We construct an adjunction between the categories IP and A. This generalizes a recent result of Winskel and Nielsen for condition/event-nets and asynchronous transition systems.
