As most of you know, Ptolemy (and thus Kepler) was basically created
by Professor Edward Lee of the EE Department at UC Berkeley. (You can
see a photo of Professor Lee doing his imitation of Ptolemy at
http://ptolemy.eecs.berkeley.edu/conferences/05/index.htm ;-) ).
I recently got a copy of Professor Lee's book
and Interpretation of Signals and Systems", Edward A Lee & Pravin
Varaiya, ISBN 0-201-74551-8). Although this book does not directly
discuss Ptolemy, it is very interesting reading about how engineers
think about signals and systems. And there are sections such as 2.3.4
"Composing systems using Block Diagrams" which are obviously related to
Kepler. If you are interested in getting a view of how engineers think
about what we in the Kepler community have been calling 'workflows', I
recommend taking a look at this book!
