Abstract: The authors' hypertext model, based on Petri nets, also represents the hypertext's browsing semantics. It permits development of browsing and authoring systems that can incorporate the analytical techniques of Petri net theory and also incorporate the user interface designs of hypertext systems. New abilities include synchronization of simultaneous traversals of separate paths through a hypertext as well as of security/access control considerations into a hypertext. This report describes the Petri-net-based Trellis model, a prototype hypertext implementation called alphaTrellis and an authoring language for Petri-net-based documents called Alpha.

Keywords: Trellis, (system for) net-based hypertext; browsing semantics; authoring system; security/access control; user interface design; synchronization (of) traversals; Alpha, authoring language (for) net-based document(s).
