I'm not really familiar with what you are doing. when I try to debug
something like this, I run each step separately to determine where the
error is. For example, if I clean up the code a bit and run the derivs
function:
derivs(time,y,parms)
[[1]]
[1] 429.709540 438.844035 281.741953 404.175692 435.341449 447.532442
[7] 448.103560 443.722972 419.132716 345.992428 363.259812 -182.179223

[19] -921.027854 -61.074252 -885.550697 -40.281082
Warning messages:
1: In k4 * ((1 + k5 * cP)/(1 + k7 * cE)) * x :
longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length
2: In (1/k8) * k4 * ((1 + k5 * cP)/(1 + k7 * cE)) * x :
longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length
Obviously there is a problem with the length of "x" as it is recycled
within the function. Also, your cE and cP values are not causing a
problem as the function runs and returns what may be reasonable
values. As I don't have the deSolve package installed (and I have my
own work to do) I can only suggest trying a stepwise debugging
process.
