Summary:The philosophy and methods of determining an internally consistent thermodynamic set of data for minerals are described, using the least-squares method. The applicability of the latter is discussed and it is applied to a small set of experimental equilibria in the system Na2O-Al2O3-SiO2-H2O. Not only must the enthalpies of formation of minerals be defined, but also the uncertainties and the correlations among them. This system is small enough to represent graphically in two dimensions.
