    Modelling with Implicit Complexes


    This sketch presents a novel method for modelling heterogeneous objects. Such objects can be heterogeneous from the point of view of their dimensionality and their internal structure. We have defined a hybrid model, called an Implicit Complex (IC) [Adzhiev et al. 2001], based on the concepts of cellular spaces and CW-complexes. We have extended CW-complexes with the implicit description of cells and allowed more sophisticated relations, between the cells, to be defined. A heterogeneous object represented by the hybrid model is considered as a single entity integrating different representation schemes with the ability to preserve and extract information about its components and independently process them while guaranteeing topologically correct definitions.
