ITL Semantics of Composite Petri Nets

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Maciej KoutnyORCiD



Interval Temporal Logic (ITL) and Petri nets are two well developed formalisms for the specification and analysis of concurrent systems.ITL allows one to specify both the system design and correctness requirements within the same logic based on intervals (sequences of states).As a result, verification of system properties can be carried out by checking that the formula describing a system implies the formula describing a requirement.Petri nets, on the other hand, have state based semantics and allow for a direct expression of causality aspects in system behaviour.As a result, verification of system properties can be carried out using partial order reductions or invariant based techniques. In this paper, we aim at providing a basic semantical link between ITL and Petri nets so that, in particular, one would be able to use both kinds of verification techniques of system properties.
