Function describing exponential decline from a defined starting value, with a decreasing rate constant.
The form given here differs slightly from the original reference by Gustafson
and Holden (1990). The parameter
beta corresponds to 1/beta in the
Starting value for the response variable at time zero.
Shape parameter determined by coefficient of variation of rate constant values.
The value of the response variable at time
The FOMC kinetic model reduces to the
SFO kinetic model for
large values of
k = beta/alpha.
