how to solve for periodic solution?

Hi,

I have no clue as to how to proceed to solve the equation below.
Any ideas on how to solve for the periodic solution of this equation
would be most appreciated!! Thankyou!!

A(t)=S(t+P)-(ln(2)/halflife)*A(t)

S(t+P) = S(t)  if t1<t<t2
S(t+P) = 0 otherwise

where P is the period of the system
t is the time at which a sample is taken
t1 is the beginning of a discontinuity
t2 is the end of a discontinuity
A(t) is the abundance at time t

I want to fit data to the resulting equation and find t1 and t2

Sincerely,

Tom
