- Reduced generalized nets
- Extensions of GN
- Algebraic aspect of the GN theory (Operations and relations)
- Topological aspect of GN theory
- Logical aspect of GN theory (Modal operators over generalized nets)
- Operator aspect of GN theory. Part 1 (Global operators, Local operators, Reducing operators)
- Operator aspect of GN theory. Part 2 (Extending operators, Hierarchical operators, Dynamical operators)
- Self-modifying GN
- Methodology for construction of generalized nets
- Applications of GN in artificial intelligence
- Applications of GN in biology and medicine

## Examination

- Formative assessment

- Test 1 on generalized nets (in Bulgarian):
**PDF (206 Kb, Info)**

- Summative assessment

Students may choose to:

- either prepare a research paper, for instance developing their own GN model of a real process, or working on an open problem from the theory of GNs,
- or take a regular examination by writing on a theme from the curriculum above.

## Literature and training materials
