Case Studies

  • Klaus Schittkowski
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 77)


The chapter contains a couple of real life case studies to illustrate the practical impact of parameter identification models. In all cases, we want to estimate unknown parameters of a mathematical model that describes a realistic dynamical process. The examples represent typical application problems in biochemistry, chemistry, pharmaceutics and electrical, mechanical, or chemical engineering.
