This paper presents a mathematical interpretation of the object-oriented modeling paradigm inspired from the Willems' behavioral approach of systems theory. The object modeling of interconnected dynamic systems is introduced independently from any computer language and expressed as a set computation problem. Two behavioral representations (complete and partial) of an object are defined. Three object relationships, i.e. instantiation, composition and generalization are examined in the behavioral
