Brian J. d'Auriol, Pete Carswell, and Kevin Gecsi, "A TransDimension Visualization Model for Complex Dynamic System Visualizations", Proceedings of The 2006 International Conference on Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Methods (MSV'06), June 26-29, 2006, Las Vegas, NV, USA, pp. 318-324.

Linear and non-linear controllable systems are commonly found in many engineering problems and are examples of models that involve complex high-dimensional spatially-related data sets. Large-scale systems comprise many state variables that evolve in complex ways. Particular evolution trajectories and regionalized evolutionary behavior of such complex systems are often non-intuitive and may reflect bifurcations in the system. A visualization model that includes multiple imagery and animation elements that facilitate heightened understanding of such a systemís evolutionary aspects is proposed. The visualizations are based on information represented in a novel structure termed Orthogonal Organized Finite State Machines (OOFSM); a brief review of an OOFSM is included. The goals of the visualization model are to support the analysis of the complex dynamic system by analysts seeking to understand the operation and behavior of the system and at the same time to support the decision making process inherent in controlling the physical system. elsewhere.
