createGradient(object, mediac, position, smax, steep, add = FALSE,
  unit = "mmol/cell")

## S4 method for signature 'Arena'
createGradient(object, mediac, position, smax, steep,
  add = FALSE, unit = "mmol/cell")

Arguments

object

An object of class Arena.

mediac

A character vector giving the names of substances, which should be added to the environment (the default takes all possible substances).

position

A character vector giving the position (top, bottom, right and left) of the gradient.

smax

A number giving the maximum concentration of the substance.

steep

A number between 0 and 1 giving the steepness of the gradient (concentration relative to the arena size).

add

A boolean variable defining whether the amount of substance should be summed or replaced

unit

A character used as chemical unit to set the amount of the substances to be added (valid values are: mmol/cell, mmol/cm2, mmol/arena, mM)

Details

This function can be used to add gradients of specific substances in the environment.
