The Compatibility of Methods of Modeling Systems of Continuous Interaction Processes 981726
Large-scale physical system development endeavors which employ advanced systems methods require close technical/scientific interaction among a diverse group of mathematical modeling practitioners. A number of highly rigorous, highly rigid methods are available for the “book-keeping” necessary for valid mathematical modeling of systems of power exchanging “continuous” physical processes. Each method is attractive for one or more specialized physical scenarios, but none has become universally accepted because all are awkward in one or more important circumstances. In this paper, a means of incorporating all these representations (including ad hoc representations) into a single system representation is presented.
