Abstract (in english)
   The composition of plutonic rocks depends on the proportions and compositions of cumulus phases and interstitial liquid. For different cumulus compositions it is possible to calculate different solid - liquid proportions from FeO/MgO ratios in the rocks and their ferromagnesian minerals. Also, it is possible to calculate changes in FeO, MgO, CaO and Al2O3 contents in the liquid during fractional crystallisation of the cumulus phases. By comparing calculated trends to those observed in the real rocks, the most likely cumulus composition can be estimated. The proposed model has been tested on a suite of basic rocks from the Kdyně complex of the Bohemian Massif
