Prof. Glasser has co-authored a book titled “Attainable Region Theory: An Introduction to Choosing an Optimal Reactor” which is published by Wiley. The book discusses how to effectively interpret, select, and optimize reactors for complex reactive systems, using Attainable Region theory. Attainable Region (AR) theory provides a means of understanding chemical reactor networks from a geometric perspective.
