You will implement and solve engineering related problems with our in-house solver, based on McCormick relaxations.

Focus is on global optimization of constraint nonlinear problems in the field of process systems engineering and further development of our solver.

Develop strategies for efficient computation of the Branch and Bound algorithm, its process engineering models with guaranteed thermodynamic stability (Semi Infinite Programming) and compare with available benchmarks.

The implementation will be performed in C++ for single level and GAMS for multi-level optimization
