Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

The `linexp`

and the power exponential (`powexp`

) functions can
be used to fit gastric emptying curves.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 | ```
linexp(t, v0 = 1, tempt = NULL, kappa = NULL, pars = NULL)
linexp_slope(t, v0 = 1, tempt = NULL, kappa = NULL, pars = NULL)
linexp_auc(v0 = 1, tempt = NULL, kappa = NULL, pars = NULL)
powexp(t, v0 = 1, tempt = NULL, beta = NULL, pars = NULL)
powexp_slope(t, v0 = 1, tempt = NULL, beta = NULL, pars = NULL)
linexp_log(t, v0 = 1, logtempt = NULL, logkappa = NULL, pars = NULL)
powexp_log(t, v0 = 1, logtempt = NULL, logbeta = NULL, pars = NULL)
``` |

`t` |
Time after meal or start of scan, in minutes; can be a vector. |

`v0` |
Initial volume at t=0. |

`tempt` |
Emptying time constant in minutes (scalar). |

`kappa` |
Overshoot term for linexp function (scalar). |

`pars` |
Default NULL. If not NULL, the other parameters with exception
of |

`beta` |
Power term for power exponential function (scalar). |

`logtempt` |
Logarithm of emptying time constant in minutes (scalar). |

`logkappa` |
Logarithm of overshoot term for linexp function (scalar). |

`logbeta` |
Logarithm of power term for power exponential function (scalar). |

The `linexp`

function can have an initial overshoot
to model secretion.

`vol(t) = v0 * (1 + kappa * t / tempt) * exp(-t / tempt)`

The `powexp`

function introduced by Elashof et al. is
montonously decreasing but has more freedom to model details in the
function tail.

`vol(t) = v0 * exp(-(t / tempt) ^ beta)`

The `_slope`

functions return the first derivatives of `linexp`

and `powexp`

.
Use the `_log`

functions to enforce positive parameters
`tempt`

and `beta`

. Rarely required for gastric emptying curves.

Vector of `length(t)`

for computed volume.

main = "linexp\nkappa = 1.3 and 1.0")
lines(t, linexp(t, v0, tempt, 1), type = "l", col = "green")
# This should give the same plot as above
plot(t, linexp(t, pars = pars), type = "l", ylab = "volume",
main = "linexp\nkappa = 1.3 and 1.0\nwith vectored parameters")
lines(t, linexp(t, v0, tempt, 1), type = "l", col = "green")
plot(t, powexp(t, v0, tempt, beta), type = "l", ylab = "volume",
main = "powexp\nbeta = 2 and 1")
lines(t, powexp(t, v0, tempt, 1), type = "l", col = "green")
