A general translation from nested Petri nets into PROMELA

Mirtha Lina Fernández Venero, Flávio Soares Corrêa da Silva

Nested Petri nets have been applied for modeling interaction protocols, mobility, adaptive systems and interorganizational workflows. However, few results have been reported on the use of automated tools for analyzing the behavior of these nets. In this paper we present a general translation from nested Petri nets into PROMELA and explain how some properties of these nets can be studied using SPIN model checker. Besides, we discuss how to deal with the main limitations that may influence SPIN performance when verifying practical examples.
