Building your petroleum engineering library with R: Muskat's Material Balance Equation ODE

It is fun coding petroleum engineering applications with R, a language invented by statisticians. The plotting capabilities of R are unparalleled. You can generate a complex plot in minutes. Couple of days ago I was in need of a log-log plot to show the error versus the step size in an ordinary differential equation (ODE) solver that in a Cartesian plot smaller numbers would make them imperceptible. With the package ggplot2, I was able to obtain a wonderful graph.
