Abstract:

A stochastic Petri net SPN provides a means for formal specification of a discrete event simulation. This document focuses on SPNs with special structure and define a symmetric SPN. Exploiting properties of a symmetric SPN and underlying regenerative process structure, the authors establish steady state estimation procedures based on independent, nonidentically distributed blocks. These results lead to efficient simulation methods for delaythroughput characteristics of ring networks. Additional keywords statistical efficiency estimates. Author
