Q0_to_lambda {biogrowth}R Documentation

Lag phase duration from Q0

Description

[Stable]

Convenience function to calculate the lag phase duration (lambda) of the Baranyi model from the maximum specific growth rate and the initial value of the variable Q.

Note that this function uses the unit system of biogrowth (i.e. log10). Care must be taken when using parameters obtained from other sources.

Usage

Q0_to_lambda(q0, mu, logbase_mu = 10)

Arguments

q0

Initial value of the variable Q.

mu

Specific growth rate in the exponential phase.

logbase_mu

Base of the logarithm the growth rate is referred to. By default, 10 (i.e. log10). See vignette about units for details.
