This first book to cover all aspects of multi-parametric programming and its applications in process systems engineering includes theoretical developments and algorithms in multi-parametric programming with applications from the manufacturing sector and energy and environment analysis. The volume thus reflects the importance of fundamental research in multi-parametric programming applications, developing mechanisms for the transfer of the new technology to industrial problems. Since the topic applies to a wide range of process systems, as well as due to the interdisciplinary expertise required to solve the challenge, this reference will find a broad readership. Inspired by the leading authority in the field, the Centre for Process Systems Engineering at Imperial College London.
