Abstract: The application of the general theory of high-level replacement systems has proven to be most rewarding in many different areas, especially in Petri nets. In this paper the extension of high-level replacement systems to refinement morphisms is applied to place/transition nets. The combination of morphisms, that preserve safety properties, with transformations of place/transition nets leads to rules and transformations, that preserve safety properties. Moreover, we extend our approach so that rules can introduce new invariant formulas, that is new safety properties.
Keywords: High-Level Replacement System; Petri Net Transformation; Safety Property; Temporal Logic; Rule-Based Refinement.
