Hierarchy


From the top, take a problem and subdivide it.
Narrow it down to a tractable size.
Or from the bottom, with details provided,
Find similarities, then generalize.


Either way, the structure's inherent.
The up/down relationships are asymmetric.
Each point can be both a child and a parent,
(Or some other terms that sound vaguely obstetric.)
