A simple empirical model

In this empirical model [2, ], it is assumed that the pedestal density is proportional to the line averaged electron density. It was found that the best fit to data from the ITPA pedestal database version 3.1 is
where tex2html_wrap_inline396 is the pedestal density in the unit of m3 and tex2html_wrap_inline400 is the line averaged electron density in the unit of m3. When this model is compared with the 533 data points, the average logarithmic RMS deviation is found to be about 12.1%.
