Abstract Tandem Catalysis/Reactor Design: A Myth or Digital Twinning Reality?While the Renaissance ideal of understanding and describing the reality remains unchallenged, the approach has changed. First, rather successful attempts of using elegant relations as models have given way to correlations, aimed at prediction and far removed from fundamental understanding. Aā€¦

Abstract Development and Application of Machine Learningā€Assisted TechniquesĀ for Kinetic Model IdentificationThe quantitative description of the behaviour of reacting systems requires the identification of an appropriate set of kinetic model equations. This identification problem poses substantial challenges to the modeller as there may be a large number of potentially appropriate kineticā€¦
