The Catalyst mixing problem seeks an optimal policy for mixing two catalysts "along the length of a tubular plug ow reactor involving several reactions". (Cite and problem taken from the COPS library)

## Mathematical formulation

The problem is given by

## Parameters

In this model the parameters used are .

## Reference Solution

If the problem is relaxed, i.e., we demand that w(t) be in the continuous interval [0, 1] instead of the binary choice \{0,1\}, the optimal solution can be determined by means of direct optimal control.
