Abstract

In this paper we introduce a new class of stochastic Petri nets in which one or more places can hold fluid rather than discrete tokens. After defining the class of fluid stochastic Petri nets, we provide equations for their transient and steady-state behavior. We give two application examples. We hope that this paper will spur further research on this topic.
