Principles by means of which an arbitrary vibrational system may be cut into subsystems and described by coupled model equations are exposed and illustrated with an elementary example. The symmetry of the equations attainable when both the usual geometric description and the dual or force space representation are used is shown. The difficulties in use and interpretation of the coupled quations when the coupling is not weak are discussed. Author
