ZDD - [W] Generalized Error, Linear Gradient (HPLC Gradient Peaks Only)

This is the Zero Distortion Density (ZDD) used in the GenHVL[W] models.

The [W] model is offered as a ZDD option for HPLC gradient peaks. In most cases, the Gen2HVL or GenHVL[Y], which use a logarithmic gradient, will be the models of choice for fitting HPLC gradient peaks. If the gradient is particularly strong, however, and a peak is dramatically impacted across the span of its specific elution by a linear gradient, and if there is very little intrinsic fronting or tailing arising from the chromatographic distortion, the peak decay may be better described by a linear rather than a logarithmic asymmetry. This model should be deemed experimental, and should always be evaluated alongside either the Gen2HVL or GenHVL[Y] model.

You will not want to use the GenHVL[W] for analytic non-gradient peaks. The linear gradient in the [W] density will actually work against the strongly fronted and tailed shapes arising from high intrinsic chromatographic distortions.

This generalized error's a_{1} center parameter is the mean of the underlying Normal. The a_{2}
width parameter is the Gaussian width used in the model. The a_{3}
is the power of the decay, 2.0 for Gaussian, >2 for the compaction arising from the gradient. The
a_{4} parameter
in the ZDD nomenclature specifies the linear gradient asymmetry, negative for fronting, positive for tailing.

There is no GenNLC[W] model since this [W] ZDD cannot replicate a Giddings decay.
