Students may drop a class up to the end of the first week of the semester in which the class is being taught. xli PART 1 ■■■ The ABCs of Objects CHAPTER 1 Abstraction and Modeling A s human beings, we’re flooded with information every day of our lives. Even if we could temporarily turn off all of the sources of “e-information” that are constantly bombarding us— emails, voicemails, news broadcasts, and the like—our five senses alone collect millions of bits of information per day just from our surroundings.

It must be capable of spontaneous movement. • It must be capable of rapid motor response to stimulation. The rules for what constitutes a plant, on the other hand, are different: • It must be a living being (same as for an animal). • It must lack an obvious nervous system. • It must possess cellulose cell walls. Given clear-cut rules such as these, placing an object into the appropriate category, or class, is rather straightforward. We can then “drill down,” specifying additional rules that differentiate various types of animal, for example, until we’ve built up a hierarchy of increasingly more complex abstractions from top to bottom.

To further complicate matters, there is virtually never only one “best” or “correct” model, only “better” or “worse” models relative to the problem to be solved. The same situation can be modeled in a variety of different, equally valid ways. When we get into actually doing some modeling in Part 2 of this book, we’ll look at a number of valid alternative abstractions for our Student Registration System (SRS) case study that was presented at the end of the Introduction. • Note, however, that there is such a thing as an incorrect model: namely, one that misrepresents the real-world situation (for example, modeling a person as having two different blood types).
