2. ### Exponential growth - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_growth

For any fixed b not equal to 1 (e.g. e or 2), the growth rate is given by the non-zero time τ. For any non-zero time τ the growth rate is given by the dimensionless positive number b. Thus the law of exponential growth can be written in different but mathematically equivalent forms, by using a different base. The most common forms are the ...

3. ### Exponential function - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_function

Exponential function. exp ⁡ z = ∑ n = 0 ∞ z n n ! {\displaystyle \exp z=\sum _ {n=0}^ {\infty } {\frac {z^ {n}} {n!}}} The exponential function is a mathematical function denoted by or (where the argument x is written as an exponent ). Unless otherwise specified, the term generally refers to the positive-valued function of a real variable ...

4. ### Doubling time - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doubling_time

The doubling time is the time it takes for a population to double in size/value. It is applied to population growth, inflation, resource extraction, consumption of goods, compound interest, the volume of malignant tumours, and many other things that tend to grow over time. When the relative growth rate (not the absolute growth rate) is constant ...

5. ### Wheat and chessboard problem - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheat_and_chessboard_problem

The exercise of working through this problem may be used to explain and demonstrate exponents and the quick growth of exponential and geometric sequences. It can also be used to illustrate sigma notation. When expressed as exponents, the geometric series is: 2 0 + 2 1 + 2 2 + 2 3 + ... and so forth, up to 2 63. The base of each exponentiation ...

6. ### Relative growth rate - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relative_growth_rate

It is also called the exponential growth rate, or the continuous growth rate. Rationale [ edit ] RGR is a concept relevant in cases where the increase in a state variable over time is proportional to the value of that state variable at the beginning of a time period.

7. ### Malthusian growth model - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthusian_growth_model

A model of population growth bounded by resource limitations was developed by Pierre Francois Verhulst in 1838, after he had read Malthus' essay. Verhulst named the model a logistic function.
