Abstract: Formal definition of the marking process of a stochastic Petri net is in terms of a general state space Markov chain. The authors obtain a limit theorem for irreducible marking processes with finite timed marking set. In addition, they provide conditions on the building blocks of a stochastic Petri net under which the marking process is a regenerative process in continuous time with finite cycle length moments. These results establish the regenerative method for simulation analysis in the stochastic Petri net setting.
Keywords: stochastic net; state space Markov chain; limit theorem (for) marking process; regenerative process; simulation analysis.
