Description

Function to calculate the IEU De for a De data set.

Usage

1
calc_IEU(data, a, b, interval, decimal.point = 2, plot = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

data

RLum.Results or data.frame (required): for data.frame: two columns with De (data[,1]) and De error (values[,2])

a

numeric (required): slope

b

numeric (required): intercept

interval

numeric (required): fixed interval (e.g. 5 Gy) used for iteration of Dbar, from the mean to Lowest.De used to create Graph.IEU [Dbar.Fixed vs Z]

decimal.point

numeric (with default): number of decimal points for rounding calculations (e.g. 2)

plot

logical (with default): plot output

...

further arguments (trace, verbose).

Details

This function uses the equations of Thomsen et al. (2007). The parameters a and b are estimated from dose-recovery experiments.

Value

Returns a plot (optional) and terminal output. In addition an RLum.Results object is returned containing the following elements:

.$summary

data.frame summary of all relevant model results.

.$data

data.frame original input data

.$args

list used arguments

.$call

call the function call

.$tables

list a list of data frames containing all calculation tables

The output should be accessed using the function get_RLum.
