deconvolve(process_object, lower_temp = 120, upper_temp = 700,
  seed = 1, n_peaks = NULL, start_vec = NULL, lower_vec = NULL,
  upper_vec = NULL)

Arguments

process_object

process object obtained from process function

lower_temp

lower temperature bound to crop dataset, default to 120

upper_temp

upper temperature bound to crop dataset, default to 700

seed

random seed for nloptr optimiser

n_peaks

number of curves optional specification

start_vec

vector of starting values for nls function. Only specify this vector if you have selected the number of curves in the n_peaks parameter.

lower_vec

vector of lower bound values for nls. Only specify this vector if you have selected the number of curves in the n_peaks parameter.

upper_vec

vector of upper bound values for nls. Only specify this vector if you have selected the number of curves in the n_peaks parameter.

Value

decon list containing amended dataframe, temperature bounds, minpack.lm model fit, the number of curves fit, and estimated component weights
