growth(object, population, j, occupyM, fbasol, tstep)

## S4 method for signature 'Bac'
growth(object, population, j, occupyM, fbasol, tstep)

Arguments

object

An object of class Bac.

population

An object of class Arena.

j

The index of the organism of interest in orgdat.

occupyM

A matrix indicating grid cells that are obstacles

fbasol

Problem object according to the constraints and then solved with optimizeProb.

tstep

A number giving the time intervals for each simulation step.

Details

Linear growth of organisms is implemented by adding the calculated growthrate by optimizeLP to the already present growth value. Exponential growth of organisms is implemented by adding the calculated growthrate multiplied with the current growth calculated by optimizeLP plus to the already present growth value

Value

Boolean variable of the jth individual indicating if individual died.
