Abstract: In this talk we will present the chemical preprocessor KPP. Given a system of chemical equations, KPP can generate efficient Fortran and C code for its simulation. Generated code includes the Jacobian in sparse format, the Hessian in sparse format, and numerical methods for efficient linear algebra, time stepping, and direct and adjoint sensitivity analysis. Numerical experiments will be presented for large, 3D inverse problems for atmospheric reactive flows, where the direct and adjoint code for chemical simulations is implemented by KPP.
