THE MINERAL SERIES EVOLUTION IN THE LITHOSPHERE. Yu.L. Voitekhovsky, Institute of Geology, Komi Science Centre, Ural Division of RAS

The graph theory is used to build systematics of 2-6-component mineral series. It is grounded to be equivalent to systematics of 2-6-vertex graphs. The results allow mineral series to be considered without breaking them artificially into mineral species and lead to the mineral series diversity to be regarded as a full structure resulted from the mineral series evolution in the lithosphere.
