Title: Super-Nets and Their Hierarchy
Authors: Tuvi Etzion and Michael Yoeli
Abstract: In this paper we introduce the concept of Super-Net, which subsumes various extensions of Petri nets, proposed earlier in the literature. We consider languages associated with both non-labeled as well as labeled Super-Nets, and use these languages to establiish a hierarchy between various types of nets. In the last section we apply this hierarchy to show that Petri net languages are not closed under Kleene star.
