Diagenetic reactions in rock bodies are best described as stochastic processes. When the diagenetic environment is fairly constant and when destruction of an unstable mineral is the limiting step, we propose that the rate of a diagenetic reaction can often be expressed by the equation δC(t) = Λ(t) C(t) dt, where C(t) denotes the concentration of reactant minerals and Λ(t) is a random function characteristic of the diagenetic environment. In the simplest case, the initial concentration is a constant and Λ is a random variable independent of time. Then, the...
