diakoptics

[‚dī·ə′käp·tiks]
(mathematics)
A piecewise approach to the solution of large-scale interconnected systems, in which the large system is first broken up into several small pieces or subdivisions, the subdivisions are solved separately, and finally the effect of interconnection is determined and added to each subdivision to yield the complete solution of the system.
