On the identifiability of linear compartmental systems a revisited transfer function approach based on topological properties

, : On the identifiability of linear compartmental systems a revisited transfer function approach based on topological properties. Mathematical Biosciences 66(2): 201-228

The problem of the a priori identifiability of compartmental systems from input-output experiments are discussed. A new approach is presented, in which, having associated a directed graph with the matrix to be identified, a set of forms is defined which are functions of the elements of the matrix itself. By exploiting the topological properties of the graph and its subgraphs, the problem can be simplified into one of smaller dimensions. Examples are provided to illustrate this new approach.

The identifiability of linear, time-invariant compartmental models from specified experiments with noise-free observations is analyzed in terms of normal modes. The formulation of the analysis reduces the problem to that of checking if a solution...

The structural approach to system identification and the relationship of the systems concepts of controllability and observability to identifiability were well-documented for compartment models which contain no closed subsystems (traps). Certain i...
