“Athena Visual Studio is a powerful and versatile program that I am using for modeling dynamic reactor performance and to fit complex kinetic models to experimental data sets. It allows you to build a working model quickly, without the need for programming expertise, but is also sufficiently flexible to permit you to insert custom Fortran code when needed. I have used the program for over 15 years and have yet to encounter a comparable program that meets my needs just as well.”

"Athena Visual studio plays a critical role in my research group's efforts to quantify the kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions, by providing reliable tools for parameter estimation, error analysis, and optimal experimental design."

"For us Athena for is an essential tool for propriety model development and distribution. In our applications Athena proved to be very robust in large parameter estimation tasks. We benefitted from the easy way of adding own Fortran code. Distribution of the developed models by means of Excel DLL's pushed the use of models throughout R&D and Sales departments. Fast and to the point support of Michael himself was very helpful".

"Pursuing an adequate balance between physical meaning and statistical significance’, that’s what a lot of chemical engineering activities are about and what is particularly well supported by Athena Visual Studio"

"The Athena visual software is a powerful tool that allows our group estimate parameters for many different adsorption isotherm models and model the separation process of gas mixtures. With the user-friendly interface it is convenient to build models."
