In the second part, notions concerning the economic management of such processes are provided, complementing and supplementing the concepts discussed in the first part. AIMS AND CONTENT LEARNING OUTCOMES The teaching deals with the Theory of Statistics, the Theory of Estimates and the numerical methods in chemical engineering with the aim of training students in data analysis, in modelling chemical processes and in chemical process optimization. AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES The participation to the training activities is instrumental to: knowing the basics of the theory of development of chemical processes; understanding the logical basis which a predictive model relies upon; giving examples about the application of such models to the chemico-physical processes of the industrial production; identifying and estimating the main parameters describing the kinetics of a chemical process; developing process simulation algorithms with deterministic or statistic models (Monte Carlo); choosing the most suitable algorithm for solving a problem of industrial optimization; applying numerical discretization criteria to a model containing differential equations. PREREQUISITES A basic knowledge of mathematics, chemistry and physics is required. TEACHING METHODS The course is structured in frontal lessons and exercises carried out by the teacher. The students having certified disabilities or other specific handicaps are recommended to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to decide the procedures of both exam and didactic activities, in order to take into account the specific individual necessities and to provide the relevant support in accordance with the didactic objectives.
