FOMC: First-Order Multi-Compartment kinetics

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References Examples

Description

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 original equation.

Usage

1
FOMC(t, parent.0, alpha, beta)

Arguments

t

Time.

parent.0

Starting value for the response variable at time zero.

alpha

Shape parameter determined by coefficient of variation of rate constant values.

beta

Location parameter.

Value

The value of the response variable at time t.

Note

The FOMC kinetic model reduces to the SFO kinetic model for large values of alpha and beta with k = beta/alpha.
