    CSL model checking of Deterministic and Stochastic Petri Nets

    Get PDF
    Deterministic and Stochastic Petri Nets (DSPNs) are a widely used high-level formalism for modeling discrete-event systems where events may occur either without consuming time, after a deterministic time, or after an exponentially distributed time. The underlying process dened by DSPNs, under certain restrictions, corresponds to a class of Markov Regenerative Stochastic Processes (MRGP). In this paper, we investigate the use of CSL (Continuous Stochastic Logic) to express probabilistic properties, such a time-bounded until and time-bounded next, at the DSPN level. The verication of such properties requires the solution of the steady-state and transient probabilities of the underlying MRGP. We also address a number of semantic issues regarding the application of CSL on MRGP and provide numerical model checking algorithms for this logic. A prototype model checker, based on SPNica, is also described

    MathMC: A mathematica-based tool for CSL model checking of deterministic and stochastic Petri nets

    Deterministic and Stochastic Petri Nets (DSPNs) are a widely used high-level formalism for modeling discreteevent systems where events may occur either without consuming time, after a deterministic time, or after an exponentially distributed time. CSL (Continuous Stochastic Logic) is a (branching) temporal logic developed to express probabilistic properties in continuous time Markov chains (CTMCs). In this paper we present a Mathematica-based tool that implements recent developments for model checking CSL style properties on DSPNs. Furthermore, as a consequence of the type of process underlying DSPNs (a superset of Markovian processes), we are also able to check CSL properties of Generalized Stochastic Petri Nets (GSPNs) and labeled CTMCs

    Theory of Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering by Collective Magnetic Excitations

    I present a tractable theory for the Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) spectral function of magnons. The low-energy transition operator is written as a product of local spin operators times fundamental x-ray absorption spectra. This leads to simple selection rules for the magnetic cross section. The scattering cross section linear (quadratic) in spin operators is proportional to the magnetic circular (linear) dichroic absorption. RIXS is a novel tool to measure magnetic quasi particles (magnons) and the incoherent spectral weight, as well as multiple magnons up to very high energy losses, in small samples, thin films and multilayers, complementary to Neutron scattering
