10th International Workshop on Petri Nets and Performance Models, 2003. Proceedings.  
Semi-Markov Stochastic Petri Nets (SM-SPNs) are a highlevel formalism for defining semi-Markov processes. We present an extended Continuous Stochastic Logic (eCSL) which provides an expressive way to articulate performance queries at the SM-SPN model level. eCSL supports queries involving steady-state, transient and passage time measures. We demonstrate this by formulating and answering eCSL queries on an SM-SPN model of a distributed voting system with up to ½¼ states.
