Grammar Morphisms and Weakly Adhesive Categories

Tobias Heindel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In the area of specification and modelling of concurrent systems, Petri nets have become a standard tool, and they still work behind the scenes in tools for graph transformation systems (cf. [1]). Moreover there is still potential for crossfertilization between the graph transformation and Petri net community. Even a better understanding of adhesive categories [2] and the related concepts of [3] seems possible in light of the proposed notion of weakly adhesive categories [4], which has emerged during work on the generalization of the co-reflective semantics of Petri nets to the realm of graph transformation and adhesive rewriting systems.
