Structural global parameter identifiability indicates whether one can determine a parameter’s value from given inputs and outputs in the absence of noise. If a given model has parameters for which there may be infinitely many values, such parameters are called non-identifiable. We present a procedure for accelerating a global identifiability query by eliminating algebraically independent non-identifiable parameters. Our proposed approach significantly improves performance across different computer…

Global Identifiability of Differential Models

First, an algebraic criterion for global identifiability is rigorously derived, which yields a deterministic algorithm, which improves the efficiency by randomizing the algorithm while guaranteeing the probability of correctness.
