From Symmetric Nets to Symmetric Nets with Bags
Depending on the system to model and analyse, using place/transition nets may easily be cumbersome and error-prone. Hence, it might be convenient to use some class of high-level nets. Coloured Petri nets enjoy the use of a high-level language to describe data while the net structure captures the flow of information. Although they provide very nice means for modelling, their generality has the drawback of the difficulty to apply efficient analysis techniques.
In this tutorial, we focus on symmetric nets which are high-level nets with a limited set of allowed data types, allowing for efficient state space analysis. We also tackle their extension to symmetric nets with bags for which analysis can still be applied.
The tutorial will present the underlying theory, the verification approaches, typical applications, and will put these into practice through hands-on sessions using the CosyVerif verification environment.
