`time` |
a numeric vector of values at which to evaluate the model. This is typically expressed in some measure of time. |

`w.max` |
A numeric parameter representing the maximum weight (or biomass). |

`t.e` |
A numeric parameter representing the time at which maximum weight is attained (w.max). |

`t.m` |
A numeric parameter representing the time at which the inflection point of the curve is attained. The maximum growth rate ocurrs at this time. |

returns a numeric vector of the same length as the input
