APOPT (for Advanced Process OPTimizer) is a software package for solving large-scale optimization problems of any of these forms:

Applications of the APOPT include chemical reactors,[1][2] friction stir welding,[3] prevention of hydrate formation in deep-sea pipelines,[4][5] computational biology,[6] solid oxide fuel cells,[7][8] and flight controls for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).[9]
