This book presents a coherent description of the theoretical and practical aspects of Coloured Petri Nets (CP-nets or CPN). It shows how CP-nets have been de veloped - from being a promising theoretical model to being a full-fledged lan guage for the design, specification, simulation, validation and implementation of large software systems (and other systems in which human beings and/or com puters communicate by means of some more or less formal rules). The book contains the formal definition of CP-nets and the mathematical theory behind their analysis methods. However, it has been the intention to write the book in such a way that it also becomes attractive to readers who are more interested in applications than the underlying mathematics. This means that a large part of the book is written in a style which is closer to an engineering textbook (or a users' manual) than it is to a typical textbook in theoretical computer science. The book consists of three separate volumes. The first volume defines the net model (i. e. , hierarchical CP-nets) and the basic concepts (e. g. , the different behavioural properties such as deadlocks, fair ness and home markings). It gives a detailed presentation of many small exam ples and a brief overview of some industrial applications. It introduces the for mal analysis methods. Finally, it contains a description of a set of CPN tools which support the practical use of CP-nets.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,3, University of Heidelberg (Anglistisches Seminar), course: Hauptseminar Sprachwissenschaft: English word-formation , language: English, abstract: What counts as a word? At first glance, this question seems to be trivial. The more time, however, one spends on reflecting about it, the more possible and plausible answers are appearing. One will soon discover that the matter is not easily decided upon. Simple definitions, like words are the items listed in a dictionary, cannot provide satisfactory explanations for all cases and leave a wide margin unaccounted for. Among other things, this margin includes all those terms which are coined for the first time.There are various reasons why people create new words: they coin them on the spur of the moment because there might not be an adequate term to express just what they want to say; they coin them in order to create some stylistic effects; they coin them to make people laugh; they coin them to set themselves apart from others; they the coin them to denote new concepts and so on. Some of these terms, which are referred to as nonce-words, are created and forgotten, but others catch on and become established words of a language. Since nonce-words are formed for various reasons and since they appear in great numbers in written and oral contexts, it is of great linguistic interest to take a more detailed look at what nonce-words really are and how they can be characterised. Peter Hohenhaus met this challenge and published his work about Ad-hoc-Wortbildung in 1996. With his work he wants to shed some light on a linguistic field of research which has so far not received much attention. He provides a new concept of nonce-words, which he claims to be more precisely defined and adequate than anything that has been published about this topic beforehand. 1 This new concept is based on certain features with the help of which not only an identification of nonce-words is possible, but also the degree of 'nonce-ness' can be measured. The benefit of this new concept depends upon the accuracy with which the ascription of those features to different nonce-words can be realised. The aim of the present paper is to check this level of accuracy and to find out just how reliable the information is which is provided by the application of Hohenhaus's concept.

The monograph presents some of the authors' recent and original results concerning boundedness and compactness problems in Banach function spaces both for classical operators and integral transforms defined, generally speaking, on nonhomogeneous spaces. Itfocuses onintegral operators naturally arising in boundary value problems for PDE, the spectral theory of differential operators, continuum and quantum mechanics, stochastic processes etc. The book may be considered as a systematic and detailed analysis of a large class of specific integral operators from the boundedness and compactness point of view. A characteristic feature of the monograph is that most of the statements proved here have the form of criteria. These criteria enable us, for example, togive var ious explicit examples of pairs of weighted Banach function spaces governing boundedness/compactness of a wide class of integral operators. The book has two main parts. The first part, consisting of Chapters 1-5, covers theinvestigation ofclassical operators: Hardy-type transforms, fractional integrals, potentials and maximal functions. Our main goal is to give a complete description of those Banach function spaces in which the above-mentioned operators act boundedly (com pactly). When a given operator is not bounded (compact), for example in some Lebesgue space, we look for weighted spaces where boundedness (compact ness) holds. We develop the ideas and the techniques for the derivation of appropriate conditions, in terms of weights, which are equivalent to bounded ness (compactness).
