System and Model Decomposition

  • Robert L. Flood
  • Ewart R. Carson


To complete Theme C on systems and modeling in the natural sciences, we are going to investigate what can be done if we have large unwieldy mathematical models that are difficult or impossible to use and manage. One possibility is to decompose the model. This chapter puts forward a systemic view on model decomposition. We touched upon this earlier, in Chapter 4, arguing conceptually for decomposition by richness of interaction. Now we will look more rigorously at the issues. The original source is Flood et al. (1988).
