Fortunately, it is not necessary to go through first principles in order to understand the deterministic mean process for a stochastic Petri net.

In fact, it turns out to be a rather straightforward and intuitive construction. It is given by ordinary differential equations, which can be directly constructed, using the graph structure of the Petri net and the transition coefficients.
