Design by extension and inheritance of behavior in Dynamical Systems. Secchi, C., Bonf̀e, M., & Fantuzzi, C. In 45th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (CDC 2006), San Diego, CA, USA, December~13--15, 2006.
abstract   bibtex   
The paper introduces a formal definition of inheritance, which is a cardinal concept in object-oriented software, for dynamical systems. The proposed definition exploits the coalgebraic description of software artifacts to provide a connection between the behavioral approach for modeling dynamical systems and the object-oriented approach for software modeling and design. This definition allows to apply the design by extension methodology, widely used in software engineering, to the design of components of manufacturing systems.
