# Compartmental Systems¶

CompartmentalSystems is a Python package to deal with compartmental models of the form

$\frac{d}{dt}\,x(t) = B(x(t),t)\,x(t) + u(t).$

Since most computations are based on the state transition operator $$\Phi$$ that solves

$\frac{d}{dt}\,\Phi(t,s) = B(t)\,\Phi(t,s),\quad \Phi(s,s) = \bf{I},$

nonlinear models need to be linearized in the first step. Then the package provides numerical computation of

• age

• compartmental age densities
• system age densities
• compartmental age mean and higher order moments
• system age mean and higher order moments
• compartmental age quantiles
• system age quantiles
• transit time

• forward and backward transit time densities
• backward transit time mean and higher order moments
• forward and backward transit time quantiles

## Important Note¶

$$B(t)=(b_{ij}(t))$$ is supposed to be a compartmental matrix for all times $$t$$:

• $$b_{ii}(t)\leq0$$ for all $$i$$
• $$b_{ij}(t)\geq0$$ for $$i\neq j$$
• $$\sum\limits_{i=1}^d b_{ij}(t)\leq 0$$ for all $$j$$
