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:
- Species, State variable, State
- Reaction, Process, Transition
- Compartment, Place, Structure, Location
- Kinetic Law, Rate law, Constitutive relation
If this post can be made publicly editable, everyone should feel free to ADD lines and ADD synonyms.
