ABSTRACT

Complex Automata were recently proposed as a paradigm to model multiscale complex systems. The concept is formalized and the scale separation map is further investigated in relation with its capability to specify the components of Complex Automata. Five classes of scale separation are identified, each potentially giving rise to a specific multiscale modeling paradigm. By introducing a generic submodel execution loop we identify multiscale coupling templates for each of the five regions. We show the relation between these templates and some multiscale models reported in the literature. Finally, a number of canonical examples are briefly discussed.
