Abstract:

This document describes a precise mathematical framework for the study of discrete-event systems. The idea is to define a particular type of stochastic process, called a generalized semi-Markov process, which captures the essential dynamical structure of a discrete-event system. The paper also attempts to give a flavor of the qualitative theory and numerical algorithms that can be obtained as a result of viewing discrete-event systems as GSMPs.
