Mappings and Constructions of Systems
This chapter considers interactions between systems through mappings and the construction of large-scale systems. In particular, Section 3.1 looks at various mappings from one general system into another. Section 3.2 studies the construction of free sums of systems and related mapping properties. Section 3.3 shows why product and Cartesian product systems exist. And Section 3.4 considers the concept of one-level product systems.
