Many process systems applications comprise large sets of nonlinear model equations, whose participating variables can be split naturally into independent and dependent variable subsets. This structure can be exploited for deterministic global optimization based on a sequential approach, which performs the optimization in the reduced space of independent variables by considering the model as implicit equations. This paper presents a new method for constructing ...
