This chapter contains five solved problems on forward modelling of the behaviour of trace elements using R (see Chaps. 11 and 13 for principles). They include theoretical treatment of batch and fractional crystallization equations, development of REE during tonalite magma fractionation, partial melting of primitive mantle or depleted mantle reservoirs, construction of a binary mixing hyperbola, plotting zircon saturation isotherms and calculation of zircon saturation temperatures.
