  • Includes numerous detailed examples and student exercises
  • The revised second edition incorporates essential elements of Hybrid System modeling, thus contributing to bridging the existing gap between time-driven and event-driven systems
  • Coverage includes control, communications, computer engineering, computer science, manufacturing engineering, operations research, and industrial engineering
  • Useful for advanced-level students in a variety of disciplines

Introduction to Discrete Event Systems is a comprehensive introduction to the field of discrete event systems, offering a breadth of coverage that makes the material accessible to readers of varied backgrounds. The book emphasizes a unified modeling framework that transcends specific application areas, linking the following topics in a coherent manner: language and automata theory, supervisory control, Petri net theory, Markov chains and queueing theory, discrete-event simulation, and concurrent estimation techniques.

Distinctive features of the second edition include:

  • more detailed treatment of equivalence of automata, event diagnosis, and decentralized event diagnosis
  • expanded treatment of centralized and decentralized control of partially-observed systems
  • new sections on timed automata with guards (in the Alur-Dill formalism) and hybrid automata
  • an introduction to hybrid systems
  • updated coverage of discrete event simulation, including new software tools available
  • recent developments in sensitivity analysis for discrete event systems as well as hybrid systems

This textbook is valuable to advanced-level students and researchers in a variety of disciplines where the study of discrete event systems is relevant: control, communications, computer engineering, computer science, manufacturing engineering, operations research, and industrial engineering.
