Recomposability analysis and application to large transport networks
Recomposability is a concept based on the growing appreciation that the mere selection of a set of plausible subsystems together with a conceivable interconnection pattern does not guarantee the realization of a desired overall system. Recomposability is viewed as a problem of determining which subsystems of an overall system under the conceived interconnection pattern are appropriate in the sense that specific properties of the overall system can be recomposed from a knowledge of the corresponding properties of the constituent subsystems. In the context of this problem, recomposability analysis may be conceptualized as a basic operational procedure of comprehending a whole, decomposing the whole, and methodizing recomposition. This paper presents a physical system theory-based methodology for recomposition of a large network solution when we have knowledge of subnetwork solutions.
