PetriDotNet is an extensible Petri net editor and analysis tool originally developed to support the education of formal methods. The ease of use and simple extensibility fostered more and more algorithmic developments. Thanks to the continuous interest of developers (especially M.Sc. and Ph.D. students who choose PetriDotNet as the framework of their thesis project), by now PetriDotNet became an analysis platform, providing various cutting-edge model checking algorithms and stochastic analysis algorithms. As a result, industrial application of the tool also emerged in recent years. In this paper we overview the main features and the architecture of PetriDotNet, and compare it with other available tools.
