Generate the system matrix for the linear differential equations determined by a compartment model.
LDEsysMat(pars, incidence)
pars |
a numeric vector of parameter values. |
incidence |
an integer matrix with columns named |
A compartment model describes material transfer between k
in a system of k
compartments to a linear system of differential
equations. Given a description of the system and a vector of parameter
values this function returns the system matrix.
This function is intended for use in a general system for solving compartment models, as described in Bates and Watts (1988).
A k
by k
numeric matrix.
