In this thesis, the two-compartment system of Schlichting and Nordmeier is extended to a multibox system, which turned out to be an extremely fruitful extension, giving rise to an abundance of phenomena, like hysteresis, coarsening, the sudden collapse phenomenon, competitive clustering, and directed transport. In describing these phenomena the flux model proved a valuable analytical tool
