Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this paper is to describe a method for the simulation of the recently introduced fluid stochastic Petri nets. Since such nets result in rather complex system of partial differential equations, numerical solution becomes a formidable task. Because of a mixed (discrete and continuous) state space, simulative solution also poses some interesting challenges, which are addressed in the paper.
