The ab-initio analysis of a continuous system starts with the microscopic theory of the material, usually expressed in terms of partial differential equations, while a system analysis starts with its global properties and interconnections. These two ends must meet for an accurate and effective model of continuous systems. The macroscopic interaction between components is consistently defined by microscopic boundary conditions through conservation of flux defined on the common boundary.
