Generalized Nets (GN) are extensions of Petri nets. In this book, the basic definitions and properties related to the concept of GN are introducted and a review of the research on GNs is given. The idea that the separate areas of the Aritificial Intelligence can be described in the frameworks of a common underlying mathematical theory is discussed and GNs are recommended for this purpose. Ways of GN-based representation of the functioning and performance results of various types of Expert Systems are discussed. Some future possibilities for GN-des criptions of Expert Systems are discussed.
