The Utility of Diagrammatic Representation for Model-based Reasoning

Ethan Scarl

In understanding the utility of diagrammatic representations for model-based reasoning, and particularly for model-based diagnosis, it is helpful to distinguish domains in which direct or analog representations are appropriate. Diagrammatic representations are naturally useful for direct domains, while assertional representations are appropriate for analog domains. However, there are circumscribed but important conditions in which DRs can usefully supplement assertional representations for determining unexpected interaction pathways.
