build_temperature_interpolator {bioinactivation} | R Documentation |

## Continuum Interpolation of Discrete Temperatures Values

### Description

Builds an interpolator of the temperature at each time and its first
derivative.
First derivatives are approximated using forward finite
differences (`approxfun`

). It is assumed that temperature is 0
and constant outside the time interval provided.

### Usage

```
build_temperature_interpolator(temperature_data)
```

### Arguments

`temperature_data` |
data frame with the values of the temperatures at each value of time. It need to have 2 columns, named time and temperature. |

### Value

a list with with two elements:

temp, the interpolator of the temperature and

dtemp, the interpolator of its first derivative
