Weibull equation (Weibull, 1951). This is equation 2.4 in Table 1 of the paper referenced below.

`time` |
a numeric vector of values at which to evaluate the model. |

`a` |
a and b paramaters define the shape of the response |

`b` |
a and b paramaters define the shape of the response |

`Yo` |
Yo is the max value for Y and when time is zero, Y is also zero |

Applied to describe water stress index, crop N-uptake, seed germination, crop growth, LAI development, etc. Remark: a and b paramaters have not direct biological interperation and the unit of paramater a depends on paramater b and therefore is difficult to provide initial estimates for non-linear regression analysis. Usually the initial paramaters were provided by trial and error. But see SSweibull.

a numeric vector of length equal to the inputs
