We are seeking a Julia developer to create a prototype for

analyzing mass flows, energy flows, substance concentrations, and

performing data reconciliation. The mathematical tools are solving

(bilinear) least-squares problems with nonlinear constraints and related

numerical linear algebra techniques.

The system consists of processes which are linked with flows. Flows are

mainly characterized by mass flows and energy flows. Processes have

transfer coefficients that represent the relationships between the

various connected flows. Considering practical applications a system may

have hundreds of flows with associated energy and mass balances (that

can be solved on a single workstation).

We will provide background material describing the relevant algorithms.

The goal of the project is to implement a prototype of the basic

algorithm and extend it step-by-step to more complex applications and

improved efficiency including usage of sparse linear algebra techniques.
