E. many alternate sets of variables that have this constructive property can usually be identified. Strictly speaking, the selection of any set of state variables includes the condition that it is a minimal set in the sense that no variable can be removed without destroying the constructive property. In our discussions, we will generally be very flexible with this requirement, and this may result in acceptance of a degree of redundancy among the variables designated as the set of state variables.

A question that could be reasonably asked at this point is the following: can D(t) be regarded as an input variable within a model of the aircraft’s flight? The conclusion which flows from our adopted definition as outlined above (input is an effect that impacts upon the behaviour of the model being developed but is not itself influenced by it) is that D(t) does not represent an input to the model of the aircraft’s behaviour. This is because D(t) depends on state variables of the model, namely, velocity and altitude (the latter via the dependency of air density, ρ, on altitude).

Such a document represents a legitimate model for the structure and serves the important purpose of providing guidance for its construction. Many definitions of a model can be found in the literature. One that we feel is especially noteworthy was suggested by Shannon [19]: ‘A model is a representation of an object, system or idea in some form other than itself’. Although outside the scope of our considerations, it is important to recognize a particular and distinctive class of models called physical models.
