We propose a new modification of Bellman's quasilinearization method such that at any iteration step, it works with an approximate solution of the original nonlinear system and with new approximation of parameters which are close enough to the previous ones. As an output, this approach
provides a construction of a convergent sequence of parameters where the limit is
the best approximation of parameters of a given system. We apply this method to
a mathematical model describing BSP-kinetics in the human liver.
