  The logical view on continuous Petri nets
Blondin M., Finkel A., Haase C., Haddad S.  ACM Transactions on Computational Logic 18(3): 1-28, 2017. Type: Article

The reachability problem for standard Petri nets is EXPSPACE hard, and the coverability problem is EXPSPACE complete. However, more efficient algorithms exist for variants of the standard nets. Continuous Petri nets are such a variant that allows ...

  From neuron to cognition via computational neuroscience
Arbib M., Bonaiuto J.,  The MIT Press, 2016. 808 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262034-96-8)

An old aphorism says that, if our brains were simple enough to be understood, we wouldn’t be smart enough to understand them. Fortunately, many scientists are not so pessimistic, and they are unrelentingly trying to decipher it. As 3D bodies...
