Effect of function decay. A. vs. k
. The points (•) were obtained solving equations (1) to (3) for different values of the total physiological adaptation capacity (the values of the other parameters as in Figure 2). The curve (—) is the hyperbola given in equation (4) with α
= 5.069 and β
= 0.6775. B. μ/μ0 vs. k
. μ is calculated for different values of k
as described in A. The values obtained (•) are represented together with the hyperbola given in equation (4) with αμ = 7.920 and βμ = 3.425.
