The term "coupled problem" is used in many numerical approaches and applications. Various coupling mechanisms in a different context, such as field problems with electrical circuits, methods in a geometrically or physically sense, couplings in time and/or coupled methods to solve a field problem, are meant with this term. For a proper classification of these problems and related solution methods a systematic definition is proposed. It can be used in the evaluation and comparison of solution methods for various problems.
