reaction: Define a reaction

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

View source: R/reaction.R

Description

During an SSA simulation, at any infinitesimal time interval, a reaction will occur with a probability defined according to its propensity. If it does, then it will change the state vector according to its effects.

Usage

1
reaction(propensity, effect, name = NA_character_)

Arguments

propensity

[character/formula] A character or formula representation of the propensity function, written in C++.

effect

[named integer vector] The change in state caused by this reaction.

name

[character] A name for this reaction (Optional). May only contain characters matching [A-Za-z0-9_].

Details

It is possible to use 'buffer' values in order to speed up the computation of the propensity functions. For instance, instead of "(c3 * s1) / (1 + c3 * c1)", it is possible to write "buf = c3 * s1; buf / (buf + 1)" instead.

Value

[SSA_reaction] This object describes a single reaction as part of an SSA simulation. It contains the following member values:

reaction("buf = c3 * s1; buf / (buf + 1)",   c(s1 = +2))
