ABSTRACT: Symbolic computation is useful in experimental design, in particular, in analyzing and improving ODE models with parameters. In this talk, we will consider one such application: the parameter identifiability problem. This problem is to decide whether the parameters of the system can be determined by a given subset of the variables of the system. We will discuss several recent algorithms addressing this problem as well as related remaining challenges, some of which are connected to fundamental questions in symbolic computation such as improving the efficiency of Groebner basis computation.
