However, in the TCM approach these lifespans are gamma-distributed which is a serious limitation because often the Weibull or more complex distributions are realistic. Therefore, we extend the TCM concept to approximately describe any lifespan distribution and call this generalized concept distributed transit compartment models (DTCMs). The validity of DTCMs is obtained by convergence investigations. From the mechanistic perspective the transit rates are directly controlled by the lifespan distribution. Further, DTCMs could be used to approximate the convolution of a signal with a probability density function. As example a stimulatory effect of a drug in an aging population with a Weibull-distributed lifespan is presented where distribution and model parameters are estimated based on simulated data.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Distributed transit compartments for arbitrary lifespan distributions in aging populations</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/39"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-01-14T14:44:08Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/32591"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
