research which looks at how location tracking can be applied to model
infection spread in hospital environments.
PIPE2 is a free, extensible,
platform-independent, open source Petri net editor/analyser developed by several
generations of MSc students at Imperial under my supervision (note DNAnet and DaNAMiCS are no longer
available or supported). PIPE2 is the current active branch of the PIPE Petri
net editor project, with nearly 60,000 downloads to date.
