Nonlinear Systems of Equations
The solution of nonlinear systems of equations is an important problem in engineering. Applications include identifying the multiple steady states of a reactor network (Folger, 1986; Schlosser and Feinberg, 1994), predicting the azeotropes formed in a nonideal mixture (Fidkowski et al., 1993; Maranas et al., 1996), finding the steady-states of a flowsheet or part of a flowsheet (Zhang, 1987; Bullard and Biegler, 1991; Wilhelm and Swaney, 1994; Bekiaris et al., 1993), identifying equilibrium points in multiphase systems (Heidemann and Mandhane, 1973; Seader et al., 1990) .
