In this paper we develop a comprehensive approach to determining the parametric structure of models. This involves considering whether a model is parameter redundant or not and investigating model identifiability. The approach adopted makes use of exhaustive summaries, quantities that uniquely define the model. We review and generalise previous work on evaluating the symbolic rank of an appropriate derivative matrix to detect parameter redundancy, and then develop further tools for use within… CONTINUE READING
