R package 'numOSL'

numOSL

External package


Numeric Routines for Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dating. Package for optimizing regular numeric problems in optically stimulated luminescence dating, such as: equivalent dose calculation, dose rate determination, growth curve fitting, decay curve decomposition, statistical age model optimization, and statistical plot visualization.

Package authors are Jun Peng, Bo Li, Jorge More, Burton Garbow, Kenneth Hillstrom, John Burkardt, Paul Gilbert, Ravi Varadhan.

R package 'RCarb'

RCarb


A collection of functions to model dose rates in carbonate-rich samples. The package is a translation of the ‘MATLAB’ program Carb by Roger P. Nathan.

Package authors are Sebastian Kreutzer, Roger P. Nathan, Barbara Mauz.

R package 'RLumBuild'

RLumBuild


This package does not really analyse luminescence data but supports the development of the other R packages from the RLum universe. While this is possible with 'devtools' (which is also used by 'RLumBuild') it comes with a couple of extra functions to allow a smooth and consistent package build process.

Package authors are Sebastian Kreutzer, Christoph Burow.

Package authors are Johannes Friedrich, Sebastian Kreutzer, Vasilis Pagonis, Christoph Schmidt, Christian Laag, Ena Rajovic, Alex Roy Duncan.

R package 'RLumShiny'

RLumShiny


'RLumShiny' provides the graphical user interface to some of the functions from the package 'Luminescence' but also isolated other functions.

Package authors are Christoph Burow, Urs Tilmann Wolpert, Sebastian Kreutzer, R Luminescence Package Team, Jan Odvarko, AnalytixWare, RStudio.
