Arguments

time

vector of simulation time steps

y

named vector with initial value of the system (e.g. cell concentration)

parms

parameters of the generalized logistic growth model

  • mumax maximum growth rate (1/time)

  • K carrying capacity (max. abundance)

  • alpha, beta, gamma parameters determining the shape of growth. Setting all values to one returns the ordinary logistic function.

...

additional parameters passed to the ode-function.

Details

The model is given as its first derivative:

dy/dt = mumax * y^alpha * (1-(y/K)^beta)^gamma

that is then numerically integrated ('simulated') according to time (t).

The generalized logistic according to Tsoularis (2001) is a flexible model that covers exponential and logistic growth, Richards, Gompertz, von Bertalanffy, and some more as special cases.

The differential equation is solved numerically, where function ode_genlogistic is the differential equation, and grow_genlogistic runs a numerical simulation over time.

The default version grow_genlogistic is run directly as compiled code, whereas the R versions ode_logistic is provided for testing by the user.

Value

For ode_genlogistic: matrix containing the simulation outputs. The return value of has also class deSolve.

For grow_genlogistic: vector of dependent variable (y).
