tgcd: Thermoluminescence Glow Curve Deconvolution

Deconvolving thermoluminescence glow curves according to various kinetic models (first-order, second-order, general-order, and mixed-order) using a modified Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm (More, 1978) <doi:10.1007/BFb0067700>. 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.
