Thesis Title

  • Operator-Overloading Algorithmic Differentiation Tools application to ACE+ Solver


  • large-scale sensitivity analysis and (robust) nonlinear optimization
    through discrete adjoint methods based on ACE+
  • Extension of ACE+ to unsteady flows and multi-physics
    applications by using a hybrid (source transformation /
    overloading) discrete adjoint approach
  • dco/fortran - Derivative Code by Overloading in fortran
