tgcd: Thermoluminescence Glow Curve Deconvolution

Deconvolving thermoluminescence glow curves according to the general-order empirical expression or the semi-analytical expression derived from the one trap- one recombination (OTOR) model using a modified Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. It provides the possibility of setting constraints or fixing any of parameters. It offers an interactive way to initialize parameters by clicking with a mouse on a plot at positions where peak maxima should be located. The optimal estimate is obtained by "trial-and-error". It also provides routines for simulating first-order, second-order, and general-order glow peaks (curves).
