mkin: Kinetic Evaluation of Chemical Degradation Data

Calculation routines based on the FOCUS Kinetics Report (2006, 2014). Includes a function for conveniently defining differential equation models, model solution based on eigenvalues if possible or using numerical solvers and a choice of the optimisation methods made available by the 'FME' package. If a C compiler (on windows: 'Rtools') is installed, differential equation models are solved using compiled C functions. Please note that no warranty is implied for correctness of results or fitness for a particular purpose.

Imports: stats, graphics, methods, FME, deSolve, R6, minpack.lm, rootSolve, inline, parallel
Suggests: knitr, rbenchmark, tikzDevice, testthat
