Theory of Connection is based on geometry, and has been used to solve many problems in engineering, economics, and in management. In this paper, firstly, the theory of connection is introduced. Secondly, a toolbox of functions for modeling and simulation is presented; the toolbox is developed for MATLAB platform. Thirdly, a case study is presented on the application of the theory to solve material flow problems. The scope of this paper is limited to introducing and applying the theory of connection. The major contribution of the paper is the introduction of the toolbox with which mathematical modeling and simulations can be done efficiently on an operating platform like MATLAB.
