The advantages and disadvantages of various methods of parametric sensitivity analysis in chemical kinetic modeling are discussed. Particular attention is given to estimates of computational labor for realistic problems, and quantitative comparisons are made utilizing a 52‐reaction, 11‐species CO oxidation mechanism. The authors′ CHEMSEN/AIM program compares favorably to other techniques in many circumstances, and provides the additional convenience of accepting input information in familiar chemical notation. This paper also reviews recent developments in theory of sensitivity analysis, relevant to chemical kinetic modeling.
