Kluwer web site for book 
This web site is intended to be a supplement to the
Handbook of Test Problems in Local and Global Optimization
published by Kluwer Academic Publishers.
The principal objective of this book is to present a collection of challenging
test problems arising in literature studies and a wide spectrum of applications.
These applications include :
pooling/blending operations problems,
heat exchanger network synthesis problems,
phase and chemical reaction equilibrium problems,
robust stability analysis problems,
batch plant design under uncertainty,
chemical reactor network synthesis problems,
parameter estimation and data reconcilliation problems,
conformational problems in clusters of atoms and molecules,
pump network synthesis problems,
trim loss minimization problems,
homogeneous azeotropic separation systems,
dynamic optimization problems in reactor network synthesis
parameter estimation, and
optimal control problems.
This web site contains executable versions of every test problem included in the book. The algebraic test problems are available in the GAMS modeling language and the differentialalgebraic problems are supplied in the MINOPT modeling language. All test problems can be downloaded from this web site. The files are organized by chapter, and links to each chapter in the book are included below.
