Silkina, Galina Iu.; Bakanova, Svetlana A.
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n18 p12865-12874 2016

Both processes are described mathematically by exponential and logistic laws and parameters (intensity of knowledge obsolescence and the knowledge half-life period) allowing application of the models to real practise of knowledge management.
