Time-continuous dynamical systems defined on graphs are often used to model complex systems with many interacting components in a non-spatial context. In the reverse sense attaching meaningful dynamics to given "interaction diagrams" is a central bottleneck problem in many application areas, especially in cell biology where various such diagrams with different conventions describing molecular regulation are presently in use. In most situations these diagrams can only be interpreted by the use of both discrete and continuous variables during the modelling process, corresponding to both deterministic and stochastic hybrid dynamics. The conventions in genetics are well known, and therefore we use this field for illustration purposes. In  and  the authors showed that with the help of a multi-scale analysis stochastic systems with both continuous variables and finite state spaces can be approximated by dynamical systems whose leading order time evolution is given by a combination of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and Markov chains. The leading order term in these dynamical systems is called average dynamics and turns out to be an adequate concept to analyze a class of simplified hybrid systems. Once the dynamics is defined the mutual interaction of both ODEs and Markov chains can be analyzed through the (reverse) introduction of the so-called Interaction Graph, a concept originally invented for time-continuous dynamical systems, see . Here we transfer this graph concept to the average dynamics, which itself is introduced as a heuristic tool to construct models of reaction or contact networks. The graphical concepts introduced form the basis for any subsequent study of the qualitative properties of hybrid models in terms of connectivity and (feedback) loop formation.
