In this embedded tutorial, we present Ptolemy II as a modeling and simulation environment for distributed hybrid systems. In Ptolemy II, a distributed hybrid system is specified as a hierarchy of models: an event-based top level and distributed islands of hybrid systems. Each hybrid system is in turn a hierarchy of continuous-time models and finite state machines.
