Theorie van Concurrency


Admission requirements

Foundations of Computer Science


‘Concurrency’ as a phenomenon in systems consisting of parallel and possibly mutually dependent processes. Petri nets are used to formally model and analyse systems with concurrency. Both structure and behaviour of (concurrent systems modelled as) Petri nets are investigated.

Course objectives

To make the student familiar with fundamental notions underlying concurrent systems and with ways to formalise and analyse these notions. Thus the student acquires insight into basic techniques for working with concurrent systems.
