4.2.4 Orthogonal Components

Orthogonal components are states with [CS] properties. As required by their semantics, [CS] always comes with [DS]. If any of a composite state's children has a [CS] property, all other children of the same parent should also have [CS].

Table 4.4 shows the textual description of the same model as Figure 4.3.
