The oxidation rate can be characterized by fitting an

exponential decay curve to the KL curve for each case [10].

E] = 45 s, and the

exponential decay parameter is k = 3.

c] = 400 s as estimated from the

exponential decay observed in this figure and Eq.

Both decay scenarios were characterized by an

exponential decay.

0], initial weight; m, the slope of growth curve at the initial specific growth rate; D, the rate of

exponential decay of the initial specific growth rate m, which measures rate of growth decline.

A time unit less than one year may show a pattern of

exponential decay.

For instance, if the response function is an

exponential decay, as mentioned above,

Therefore SNLQ adopts a

exponential decay mechanism which is similar to the information decay mechanism in ant colony algorithm.

Studying the process of shrinkage in any given part produces a relationship between size and time that follows a function known as

exponential decay.

In fact one of the valuable outcomes of the SAAO work was to show that, between days 122 and 265, the

exponential decay in the flux very closely matched the radioactive decay-rate of 56Co.

To arrive at a quantitative description of these differences, we chose to compare the slope of the decreasing trend in the proportion of individuals choosing the extensive-options scenario across the maximizer and satisficer groups using a one-phase

exponential decay model applied to the data and following the procedures outlined in Motulsky and Christopoulos, 2004.

By exploiting the

exponential decay profile of cluster power and the multivariate adaptive regression spline technique (MARS), the least-squares (LS) linear regression is utilized to provide a user-interactive solution to identify clusters, in a relatively objective manner [18].
