Tool Description

AlPiNA is a graphical editor and model checker for a class of high-level Petri nets called Algebraic Petri Nets. Its main purpose is to perform reachability checks on complex models.

AlPiNA is implemented as an Eclipse plugin. The user interface was created using the EMP metamodeling approach. Thus, models are easy to implement, without the need to know the underlying techniques related to model checking performance.

The actual model checking is performed in an independent engine, implemented in Java. It performs symbolic model checking based on ΣDD, an efficient evolution in the Decision Diagrams field, using novel techniques such as algebraic clustering and algebraic unfolding. This allows to check models with very large state spaces.
