This function implements the microbial model Bacwave (bacterial waves), a two-pool model with a bacterial and a substrate pool. It is a special case of the general nonlinear model.

`t` |
vector of times (in hours) to calculate a solution. |

`umax` |
a scalar representing the maximal relative growth rate of bacteria (hr-1) |

`ks` |
a scalar representing the substrate constant for growth (ug C /ml soil solution) |

`theta` |
a scalar representing soil water content (ml solution/cm3 soil) |

`Dmax` |
a scalar representing the maximal relative death rate of bacteria (hr-1) |

`kd` |
a scalar representing the substrate constant for death of bacteria (ug C/ml soil solution) |

`kr` |
a scalar representing the fraction of death biomass recycling to substrate (unitless) |

`Y` |
a scalar representing the yield coefficient for bacteria (ug C/ugC) |

`ival` |
a vector of length 2 with the initial values for the substrate and the bacterial pools (ug C/cm3) |

`BGF` |
a scalar representing the constant background flux of substrate (ug C/cm3 soil/hr) |

`ExuM` |
a scalar representing the maximal exudation rate (ug C/(hr cm3 soil)) |

`ExuT` |
a scalar representing the time constant for exudation, responsible for duration of exudation (1/hr). |

This implementation containts default parameters presented in Zelenev et al. (2000). It produces nonlinear damped oscillations in the form of a stable focus.
