The major tasks facing engineers and scientists in industrial chemistry are the operation and optimization of existing processes and the design of new or improved ones. Computational methods and tools are saving time and costs in process development and optimization if they are used complementarily to experimental methods. Based on the latest online edition of Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, and containing articles yet unpublished in print, this ready reference meets the need for a comprehensive survey of the mathematical fundamentals, complementary computational approaches as well as the application of modeling and simulation in chemistry and engineering. Each of the detailed and carefully edited articles is written by relevant international experts, including Bruce A. Finlayson (University of Washington, USA ) Lorentz T. Biegler (Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh, USA) Donald Boyd (Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, USA) Vladimir Hlavacec (University of Buffalo, USA) Philippe A. Bopp (University Bordeaux, France) Steffen Hardt (Technical University Darmstadt, Germany) Readers benefit from the rigorous and cross-indexed nature of the parent reference, and will find both broad introductory information as well as in-depth details of significance to industrial and academic environments. The handbook is rounded off by keyword and author indexes.
