A Polynomial Translation of pi-Calculus (FCP) to Safe Petri Nets

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Victor Khomenko



We develop a polynomial translation from finite control processes (an important fragment of pi-calculus) to safe low-level Petri nets. To our knowledge, this is the first such translation. It is natural (there is a closecorrespondence between the control flow of the original specification and the resulting Petri net), enjoys abisimulation result, and is suitable for practical model checking.
