AbstractMaterial-spatial interdependence (mat-dep) is a type of dependence in which the physical extents of two entities are necessarily and mutually contingent, e.g. an object and its matter, or a hole and its host. Such dependence is commonly found amongst arrangements of physical entities, particularly in models of the natural environment. In this paper, we analyze and formally characterize mat-dep, and show how it augments the physical characterization of the containment, constitution, and hosting relations, primarily for development of a hydro ontology.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Examines the logic of how physical objects are dependent on another, applied specifically to how the spaces in an aquifer that contain groundwater are dependent on the host rock body.
