re: What is a system? VIEW POST


I use the term to define a grouping of items that share a common purpose or goal.


That’s actually a pretty good one ☝️
I would probably add „at a higher abstraction level“ because a group of lines of code also serve a common purpose...


Hi, I am agree with you. Gilbert Strang give great insight about how we look 'system' in the context of mathematical abstraction:

Any linear system such that Ax+B=C can be looked as Matrix. By using Matrix, we can solve linear system using least square method. This how Matlab work.
