Actually, you can specify, if you want, the relationship between any two 
subjects in UDC

Subjects:

004	Computer science
37	Education

Relationships
  -042.1   Bias phase
  -042.2   Comparison phase
  -042.3   Influence phase
  -042.4   Tool phase. Exposition phase


37:004		unspecified relationship between computer science and 				education
37-042.1:004 'computer science' applied or aimed to use in 'education'
37-042.2:004 comparison of 'computer science' and 'education'
37-042.3:004 influence of 'computer science' on 'education'
37-042.4:004 'computer science' demonstrated on the field of 'education'

There are also the following useful relationships but it does not make 
make sense to show how they work on the same two subjects
-042.52 Isolation
-042.55 Separation
-042.62 Association
-042.65 Independence
-042.72 Dependence
-042.75 Interdependence. Mutual dependence. 'Symbiosis'
-042.82 Complementarity

Needles to say one can also combine any two or more subjects with any 
relationships and relate/subsume them to any two or more subjects in 
different relationships - but this serves to a very detailed and complex 
indexing

Anyway I thought this may be a good example how coordination works in 
fully synthetic classifications
