The complexity of systems of chemical reactions makes it difficult to determine the effect uncertainties in rate constants and other parameters have on the behavior of .the species concentrations. Mathematically, the sensitivity analysis of a system of chemical reactions consists in the problem of determining the effect of uncertainties in parameters and initial conditions on the solution of a set of ordinary differential equations. Sensitivity analysis procedures may be classed as deterministic or stochastic in nature. Currently available sensitivity analysis techniques are reviewed, and the entire problem is presented in a unified framework.
