Equation for plant growth

Have the results of any research been used to formulate an 
equation for plant growth?  For example, the basic "water + CO2 + 
light energy = growth" formula; has there ever been a calculated ratio 
of CO2/light energy (x amount CO2/y amount of lumens, for example)?
     If such a ratio and equation do exist, have any been formulated 
that take into account temperature and nutrients?  For instance, in 
the above equation iron would play a role.
     Any help with finding this information would be greatly 
appreciated.  Thank you.
