The Gompertz equation describes the decay of biological systems in which the rate of decrease of the concentration of an organism varies directly with its concentration and inversely with the concentration of an inhibitor. The inhibitor concentration falls exponentially with time. Four methods are compared for correlating data on the destruction of Ascites tumor cells which fit the Gompertz equation: analytical, graphical, analog computer, and digital computer.
