Abstract Sensitivity analysis is usually focussed on parameters and is a relatively well-developed field compared with function sensitivity. But how sensitive are model conclusions to the choice of functions used in the right hand side of differential equation models? Most work in this area has been scenario-based where alternative functions are tested. In this paper, we examine the sensitivity of a model to changes in the shape of the functions.
