How much linearization occurs when you integrate across the whole growing season?

While that reference is Python specific, the concept of method resolution (also called linearization in the Lisp world) is general and applies to many languages, including Dylan and Common Lisp.

Hubbert linearization (the tool often used to predict future production) has historically underestimated total production.

I think that any effort to use the method for world production will even more severely underestimate production since Hubbert linearization has no mechanism to take price signals into account.

Besides, they use verbatim LBC's linearization, the exact form of the full theory doesn't matter as long as you get that correct.

I tried but the closest I got was doing valley to peak, peak to valley linearization.

In control theory, this is called “linearization along a trajectory.”

The Hilbertstyle system H is useful for metamathematical investigations of intuitionistic logic, but its forced linearization of deductions and its preference for axioms over rules make it an awkward instrument for establishing derivability.

However, it is very close to linear in the observed ranges and the linearization of the above equation has little consequence especially relative to the general imprecision of the procedure with benefits to the eventual analysis.
