Example text

We define the relation co ~ (B U E) x (B U E) (or COON if the net is not known from the context) as: co = (F*), and we call co the concurrency relation on ON. A set G ~ B U E is called a cut of ON if and only if: (Va,b E G)((a,b) E co /\ (Vc E (B U E) \ G)(3a E G)(a,c) rt co) or a = b In other words, a cut is a maximal antichain of F* (see Appendix A for the definition of antichain). A set G ~ B U E is called a B-cut if and only if G is a cut and G ~ B. The set of all B-cuts on ON will be denoted by bcuts( 0 N).

4 (c) is state machine decomposable, and its state machine decomposition consists of the nets from Fig. 4 (a) and Fig. 4 (b). In general, SMD(N) is not a unique set, as Fig. 11 shows, but its cardinality is always the same, equal to card(Mo). In the sequel we will use the abbreviation: smd-net instead of the full name: state machine decomposable net, and furthermore, when we talk about an smdnet we mean a pair (N,{N1 , ••• ,Nn }) where {Nl, ... ,Nn } = SMD(N), however, if it does not lead to confusion, we will denote this net by N itself.

2) a E Ev is enabled at ~ {:? ~ ~ E VFS. (3) A E Ind is simultaneously enabled at ~ ~ ::} {:? ~ (VB C A)B = 0 or B zs A E VFS. (~) if the explicit name Pr is necessary) denote the family of all sets of events simultaneously enabled at ~. Assume also that for ~ E V ev·\ V F S, enabled(~) = 0. Let SEQ, CON ~ Vev· x Vev· be the following relations: ~ SEQ -y {:? (3a E Ev){a} E enabled(~) /\ -y = ~ ~ ~ CON 1l {:? (3A E enabled(~»ll = ~ A. The relations SEQ and CON are called respectively: the sequential reachability in one step, and the concurrent reach ability in one step.
