The CCl4 Inhalation Model

Description

The CCl4 inhalation model implemented in .Fortran

Usage

ccl4model(times, y, parms, ...)

Arguments

times time sequence for which the model has to be integrated.
y the initial values for the state variables ("AI", "AAM", "AT", "AF", "AL", "CLT" and "AM"), in that order.
parms vector or list holding the ccl4 model parameters; see the example for the order in which these have to be defined.
... any other parameters passed to the integrator ode (which solves the model).

Details

The model is implemented primarily to demonstrate the linking of FORTRAN with R-code.

The source can be found in the ‘dynload’ subdirectory of the package.
