A flexible modelling environment for hard engineering and science problems.

ASCEND IV is an object-oriented mathematical modeling environment, with similar functionality to programs such as GAMS, AMPL, Aspen, or Dymola. If can be used to solve difficult non-linear systems of equations and to plot dynamic behaviour of such systems. Although ASCEND has primarily been developed by Chemical Engineers, great care has been exercised to assure that it is domain independent. ASCEND can support modeling activities in fields from Architecture to (computational) Zoology.
