QP theory cannot be used to estimate how likely it is that there will be an explosion.
QP theory is unable to analyze situations only slightly more complicated than the one shown. For example, if we include a model for heat loss from the container to the surrounding environment, QP theory can no longer predict whether or not the water will boil.
QP theory provides little basis for reasoning about continuous control actions; for example, how much or when should the heat be turned down to avoid explosion?
