Includes bibliographical references and index
The nature and organization of optimization problems. -- Developing models for optimization. -- Formulations of the objective function. -- Basic concepts of organization. -- Optimization of unconstrained functions: one dimensional search. -- Unconstrained multivariable optimization. -- Linear programming (LP) and application. -- Nonlinear programming with constraints. -- Mixed-integer programming. -- Global optimization for problems with continuous and discrete variables. -- Heat transfer and energy conservation. -- Separation processes. -- Fluid flow systems. -- Chemical reactor design and operations. -- Integrated planning, scheduling, and control in the process industries.
This book is an update of a successful first edition that has been extremely well received by the experts in the chemical process industries. The authors explain both the theory and the practice of optimization, with the focus on the techniques and software that offer the most potential for success and give reliable results. Applications case studies in optimization are presented with new examples taken from the areas of microelectronics processing and molecular modelling. Ample references are cited for those who wish to explore the theoretical concepts in more detail.
