This book discusses and illustrates practical problem solving in the major areas of chemical and biochemical engineering and related disciplines using the novel software capabilities of POLYMATH, Excel, and MATLAB. Students and engineering/scientific professionals will be able to develop and enhance their abilities to effectively and efficiently solve realistic problems from the simple to the complex. This new edition greatly expands the coverage to include chapters on biochemical engineering, separation processes and process control. Recent advances in the POLYMATH software package and new book chapters on Excel and MATLAB usage allow for exceptional efficiency and flexibility in achieving problem solutions. All of the problems are clearly organized and many complete and partial solutions are provided for all three packages. A special web site provides additional resources for readers and special reduced pricing for the latest educational version of POLYMATH.
