|+||The term dependency is used to identify different values for the same [[parameter]] (or any other [[block]] for that matter).|
|+||Parameter values often have dependencies, such as dependency on atomic element (Iron, Methane, Oxygen), on media (concrete/clay/rock) or on location (Paris, Gothenburg, Kampala). |
|+||The number of dependencies for a parameter determines its [[dimension]]. A parameter with one dependency is referred to as a vector parameter, two dependencies gives a matrix parameter. |
|+||A type of dependency is defined using an [[index-list]], which is a named list of [[index|indices]]. |
