Limitations of Dijkstra's Semaphore Primitives and Petri nets

S. Rao Kosaraju
1973 Proceedings of the fourth symposium on Operating system principles - SOSP '73  
Patil [8] proves that the semaphores with the P and V primitives are not sufficiently powerful. He suggests a generalization of the P primitive.  ...  Recently various attempts have been made to study the limitations of Dijkstr~s semaphore primitives for the synchronization problem of cooperating sequential processes [3, 4,6, 8] .  ...  LIMITATIONS OF PETRI NETS In this section we want to show that Petri nets cannot realize the 2 Producer 2 consumer problem.  ...

A Petri Net Perspective on the Resource Allocation Problem in Software Engineering [chapter]

Juan-Pablo López-Grao, José-Manue Colom
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a new subclass of Petri Nets that generalizes the previously known RAS subclasses and we present a taxonomy of anomalies that can be found in the context of software systems.  ...  The success of this research stems from the identification of subclasses of Petri Nets that correspond to an RAS abstraction of these systems.  ...  Finally, some useful definitions and basic concepts of Petri nets are provided as reference in appendix A. 2 The RAS View of a Software Application Example 1 presents a humorous variation of Dijkstra's  ...

SynchNet: A Petri Net Based Coordination Language for Distributed Objects [chapter]

Reza Ziaei, Gul Agha
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The level of abstraction that it provides allows tools and techniques developed for Petri nets to be readily applied to analysis and verification of the specified coordination patterns.  ...  SynchNet, which is inspired by Petri nets, has a simple syntax and semantics, but is expressive enough to code many of the commonly used coordination patterns.  ...  Since synchnets are in fact Petri nets, we can benefit from the rich and well studied theory of Petri Nets.  ...

Software Transactional Memory with Interactions [article]

Marino Miculan, Marco Peressotti
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To overcome this limitation, in this paper we present Open Transactional Memory (OTM), a programming abstraction supporting safe, data-driven interactions between composable memory transactions.  ...  Figure 6 : 6 Examples of Petri nets.  ...  A Petri net is readily implemented in OTM by representing each transition by a thread, and each place by a semaphore.  ...

Formal methods for the specification and design of real-time safety critical systems

Jonathan S. Ostroff
1992 Journal of Systems and Software  
Safety critical computers increasingly a ect nearly every aspect of our lives. Computers control the planes we y on, monitor our health in hospitals and do our work in hazardous environments.  ...  This paper surveys formal methods for specifying, designing and verifying real-time systems, so as to improve their safety and reliability.  ...  Petri Net theory was one of the rst concurrent formalisms to deal with real-time. Two basic timed versions of Petri Nets have been introduced: time Petri Nets 88 and timed Petri Nets 124 .  ...

We successively present the modeling of these primitives and the way the solutions are defined and explored based on the power criterion further in Section.  ...  The order of firing will determine the way the Petri Net will be executed. To avoid this non-determinism, the building of Petri Nets is restricted to places with one single output edge.  ...  Figure 4 . 27 : 427 Petri Net of the inner loop of the matrix multiplication function with feedback Figure 4 . 28 : 428 Developed Petri Net of the inner loop of the matrix multiplication function Figure  ...

The Problem of Mutual Exclusion: A New Distributed Solution

Rajeev Chawla
1991
This is to certify that the thesis prepared by Rajeev Chawla entitled The Problem of Mutual Exclusion -A New Distributed Solution has been approved by his committee as satisfactory completion  ...  Methodologies like Petri Nets[Peterson 1981b], CSP [Hoare 1985] , and UNITY [Chandy 1988 ] require the program But, it is often inconvenient and tedious as these primitives are not the same as the primitives  ...  Extensions of P and V Primitives Semaphores with P and V primitives have been demonstrated to be adequate and sufficient to solve a wide variety of synchronization problems.  ...
