### Abstract

A linear regressive model structure and output predictor, both in algebraic form, are deduced from an LTI state space system with symmetric tridiagonal system matrix structure. In practice, systems with such a system matrix arise in modeling of distributed system configurations, and are known as compartmental systems. Two diffusion example cases are approximated by compartmental models and simulations of one case are worked out. Simulation results indicate that the method may be attractive for estimation, prediction and insight in compartmental systems, especially when physical knowledge is to be preserved.
