Approximate synonyms in modeling jargon

Perhaps the only disadvantage of a course with multiple lecturers is that not everyone uses the same word for the same modeling concept. Following is a list of synonyms you may find helpful in following the modeling thread through the fabric of diverse lectures. I haven’t done this for the phase space/bifurcation lecturers, but I hope one of the TAs or lecturers will do so.

In general, I’ve listed the standard SBML term first:

  1. Species, State variable, State
  2. Reaction, Process, Transition
  3. Compartment, Place, Structure, Location
  4. Kinetic Law, Rate law, Constitutive relation

If this post can be made publicly editable, everyone should feel free to ADD lines and ADD synonyms.
