This chapter contains four solved problems on reverse modelling of the behaviour of major elements using R (see Chap. 7 for principles). These include reverse modelling of fractional crystallization, partial melting of a paragneiss (yielding granitic magma) and calculation of a general “norm” given the composition of a bulk rock and its constituent minerals.
