This web site contains executable versions of test problem included in the book C.A.Floudas, P.M. Pardalos et al. "Handbook of Test Problems in Local and Global Optimization" published by Kluwer Academic Publishers and in the book C.A. Floudas, P.M.Pardalos "A Collection of Test Problems for Constrained Global Optimization Algorithms".

These test problems are arising in literature studies and a wide spectrum of applications: pooling/blending operations problems, heat exchanger network synthesis problems, phase and chemical reaction equilibrium problems, robust stability analysis problems, batch plant design under uncertainty, chemical reactor network synthesis problems, parameter estimation and data reconcilliation problems, conformational problems in clusters of atoms and molecules, pump network synthesis problems, trim loss minimization problems, homogeneous azeotropic separation systems, dynamic optimization problems in reactor network synthesis parameter estimation.

The algebraic test problems are available in the AMPL modeling language.
All test problems can be downloaded from this web site. The files are organized by chapter, and links to each chapter in the book(s) are included below.
