The following problem is an example from the global optimal control literature and was introduced in [Wen1977]The entry doesn't exist yet.. The process starts with kerogen and is decomposed into pyrolytic bitumen, oil and gas, and residual carbon. The objective is to maximize the fraction of pyrolytic bitumen. There are 5 reactions including:

Each reaction is governed by a rate described by:
