 English term or phrase: loop-free directed graph structures These operation components can be composed into loop-free, directed graph structures of data flow, which all do the filtering and translations, in order to convert the incoming system events into animation events

Explanation:
'Directed graph structure' is a mathematical concept and means a graphic structure (usually representing some sort of abstract structure, such as a control algorithm) drawn (represented) as set of nodes interconnected by lines (the 'graph structure') with the lines being 'directed', which means that whatever 'moves' through the structure (e.g. data, the state of a system, etc.) can only move along each line (from one node to the next) in a single direction. Such lines are often shown as arrows.
'Loop-free' means there are no paths throug the graph structure that allow one to return back to a node that has already been visited (i.e., there are no closed paths).

A directed graph structure can also be used to define or represent a processing system (as in your example). In that case each of the nodes would represent some sort of processing operation, and the directed graph structure would define/represent the sequence of operations performed on the data.

 thank you!

agree  VerenaH (X): actually "azyklischer gerichteter Graph", und die Struktur muss noch rein irgendwie :-) http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerichteter_Graph
