See http://cermics.enpc.fr/~cohen-g//SED/index-e.html for a two-page
introduction to the field and its applications. Definitely worth a look
IMHO.

The second software you refer to
(http://www-rocq.inria.fr/MaxplusOrg/soft.html) is a Scilab package but
essentially made of C and Fortran files. Getting a working binding for
Python may not be that hard ...
