This chapter contains one solved problem on reverse modelling of the behaviour of isotopes using R (see Chap. 17 for principles). The exercise is concerned with fitting a binary mixing hyperbola to Pb–Hf isotopic data from lavas of the La Martinique Island (Lesser Antilles) by the least-square method.
