Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1101)


A class library supporting a metamodel based on algebraic graph theory is presented. The metamodel provides the basis for a representation of different modeling techniques and evolution of corresponding schemes. The library is intended to support the implementation of modeling and restructuring tools.
