Manuel Silva mainly focuses on Petri net, Stochastic Petri net, Discrete mathematics, Theoretical computer science and Process architecture. Petri net is a subfield of Algorithm that Manuel Silva tackles. His Stochastic Petri net research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Synchronization, Interpretation, Generalization and Graph theory.

His Discrete mathematics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Net and Algebraic number. The concepts of his Theoretical computer science study are interwoven with issues in Event, Discrete event dynamic system, Rotation formalisms in three dimensions, State and Throughput. His research in Process architecture intersects with topics in Scheduling, Mathematical optimization and Mutual exclusion.

His most cited work include:

  • Generalized mutual exclusion contraints on nets with uncontrollable transitions (319 citations)
  • A Simple and Fast Algorithm to Obtain All Invariants of a Generalized Petri Net (217 citations)
  • Petri nets and flexible manufacturing (211 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Petri net, Stochastic Petri net, Robot, Control theory and Theoretical computer science. His Petri net research includes elements of Discrete mathematics, Liveness and Semantics. His study in Discrete mathematics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Net, Bounded function and Incidence matrix.

His Stochastic Petri net research is multidisciplinary, relying on both State, Reachability, Discrete system and Linear programming, Mathematical optimization. His Robot research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Control engineering and Simulation. His studies link Hexapod with Control theory.
