Summary Learn how to effectively interpret, select and optimize reactors for complex reactive systems, using Attainable Region theory -Teaches how to effectively interpret, select and optimize reactors for complex reactive systems, using Attainable Region (AR) theory -Written by co-founders and experienced practitioners of the theory -Covers both the fundamentals of AR theory for readers new to the field, as we all as advanced AR topics for more advanced practitioners for understanding and improving realistic reactor systems -Includes over 200 illustrations and 70 worked examples explaining how AR theory can be applied to complex reactor networks, making it ideal for instructors and self-study -Interactive software tools and examples written for the book help to demonstrate the concepts and encourage exploration of the ideas
