In this paper current methods to store piecewiselinear mappings will be discussed. These methods are well-known in literature but have never been thoroughly compared. To be able to do so, the model descriptions will all be transformed into a most general form. Among the aspects of comparison will be the ease of modeling, the class of functions that can be modeled using a certain model description and the suitability to use the models in simulators. No best model description will be found but it will become apparent that some models are better suited for certain applications than others.
