Abstract

This paper studies the existence and uniqueness of parameters identification in linear compartmental systems using successive resolutions of linear algebraic systems. These results can be exploited to build up simple numerical algorithms involving only algebraic linear systems. Compartmental analysis is the main mathematical technique for modelling phenomena arising in biology and medicine.
