Alph is no longer for sale.

I am afraid revenue generated from Alph has not proven to be sufficient to justify its continued sale. I greatly appreciate the support of the folks who have purchased Alph in the past and hope that it will continue to serve you well in the future.

Alph Hysim 1.0 Example

Note - this case requires compounds not available in Alph Jr.

This is really just an exercise in nostalgia on my part, by using Alph to recreate the example from the manual for the 1980 release of Hysim 1.0. See the more detailed description..
