The problem with such a program is that there exists no general framework that allows for an unambiguous measure of the relative importance of a system’s internal degrees of freedom.
Coarse graining and control theory model reduction
For linear systems, it is possible to develop a completely unambiguous measure of how the internal states of a system contribute to the response.
Coarse graining and control theory model reduction
Furthermore, these techniques are not limited to the idealized setting in which all of the internal degrees of freedom of the system can be perfectly measured.
Coarse graining and control theory model reduction
The remaining ambiguity is due to the internal states of the system.
Coarse graining and control theory model reduction
In fact, there may be arbitrarily many internal states that do not contribute to the system’s response.
