TAPENADE


Summary:
TAPENADE is a source-to-source AD tool. Given a FORTRAN77, FORTRAN95,
or C source program, it generates its derivative in forward (tangent) or
reverse (adjoint) mode. TAPENADE is the successor of ODYSSEE.
TAPENADE is directly accessible through a web servlet, or can be downloaded locally.

Features:

  • Internal representation of the program as a Call-Graph of Control-Flow graphs

  • Static analyses (type-checking, aliasing, uninitialized variables,...)

  • Interprocedural activity analysis

  • Local optimizations using data-dependence analysis

  • Graphical user-interface through a web browser


More specifically for the reverse mode:

  • Control-Flow reversal

  • Interprocedural TBR ("To Be Recorded") analysis

  • Checkpointing on subroutine calls

  • In-Out Analysis for smaller Snapshots



Supported Platforms:
  • Windows
  • Unix/Linux
  • Mac
  • Application Server


Licensing: free with restrictions
