On the eliminating attempts toward Šesták–Berggren equation
- 238 Downloads
Some recent commentaries doubt the originality of Šesták–Berggren equation even though it received until today almost eight hundred citation responses. The worth of SB equation is examined in terms of general logistic equation showing its divergent philosophical strategy from dissimilar orthodox geometrical modeling in kinetics. The use of appended terms ‘truncated’ and ‘extended’ is questioned.

The results were developed within the CENTEM project, reg. no. CZ.1.05/2.1.00/03.0088, that is co-funded by the ERDF as part of the MEYS—Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports OP RDI Program, and in the follow-up sustainability stage, supported through the CENTEM PLUS (LO 1402) by financial aid of above MEYS under the “National Sustainability Program I.”
