Geochemical Modelling of Igneous Processes – Principles And Recipes in R Language Bringing the Power of R to a Geochemical Community

The aim of this book is to unlock the power of the freeware R language to advanced university students and researchers dealing with whole-rock geochemistry of (meta-) igneous rocks. The first part covers data input/output, calculation of commonly used indexes and plotting in R. The core of the book...
