    It often occurs that a system can be described by several competing models. In order to distinguish among the alternative models, further information about the behavior of the system is required. One way to obtain such information is to perform suitably chosen perturbation experiments. We introduce a method for the selection of optimal perturbation experiments for discrimination among a set of dynamical models. The models are assumed to have the form of semi-quantitative differential equations. The method employs an optimization criterion based on the entropy measure of information.
