Petri Net Models of Plasmodium Propagation
The slime mould behaviour can be examined as rational from the standpoint of decision theory. So, we can try to implement some strong mathematical tools on the slime mould transitions, such as Petri nets, cf. [119, 121]. Let us remember that Petri nets were developed by C.A. Petri  as a graphical and mathematical tool, among others, for describing information processing systems. As a graphical tool, Petri nets can be used as a visual-communication aid. As a mathematical tool, Petri nets are represented, among others, by algebraic equations. For detailed information on Petri nets, we refer the readers to .
