With only a few object and link types, it is possible to construct representations of complex knowledge systems such as the taxonomies, theories, processes, or methodologies used to describe various fields of knowledge. In this chapter, we will present a taxonomy of knowledge models and provide examples of each model type. Our goal is to demonstrate the generality of the MOT representation system by modeling a wide variety of situations usually modeled by other representations, or in some cases, not at all. In so doing, we will develop a library of models from which designers can choose to adapt to their own areas of concern.
