Solving distillation problems by terrain methods
Date of Original Version
This paper clearly shows that the recently proposed terrain methodology of Lucia and Yang (2003) can be used to solve steady-state distillation problems in a reliable and efficient manner. Numerical results are presented that show that terrain methods are superior to Newton's method and homotopy-continuation for distillation examples with multiple solutions. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd.
