    match up to

    Hello :)

    Is it correct to say the following:

    '...this is not necessary for a successful theory to have its structures matched up with/to more basic structures.' ?

    What I'd like to say is that these structures do not fit together.

    Thank you

    matched up with.

    The "this" seems poor. If "this" begins your sentence, replace it with "It". Otherwise, could you quote the whole sentence?

    No, that's just the middle of the sentence, but anyway I'll change it for 'it', which seems better.
