# Section <connects>¶

<connects>

The purpose of this section is to define the relations between solvers i.e. the connections of providers and receivers. There is only one type of tags allowed in this section:

<connect>

Attributes: out (required) – Provider to connect in the format “solver_name.outProviderName” (or “filter_name.out”). in (required) – Receiver to connect in the format “solver_name.inReceiverName”. If solver_name is a filter, this attribute should have form "solver_name[object]" or "solver_name[object@path]", where object (optionally specified by path) is the geometry in which the provider specified in out attribute provides data.
<connect out="therm.outTemperature" in="electr.inTemperature"/>
