Process models like e.g. CSTR's and different distillation operations are well-known to have multiple solutions. In addition, e.g. phase stability analysis, which is an integral part of phase equilibrium calculation, has frequently multiple solutions.
Robust solving of these process models necessitates formulating new global numerical solving methods. In our group homotopy methods are intensively developed further to enable robust model solving.
