Fig. 1a: Development of a
bacteria population as described by the MIC concept. x-axis is the time
axis (t measured in hours) y-axis gives the concentration C of meropenem
in mg/l. The z-axis gives the logarithm of the number N[C, t] of S. aureus.
N[C, t] as specified in (6), with R_{0}
= 0.33 /h, MIC =
0.029 mg/l. Figure shows the development
of the population when MBC = 3 MIC.
