abstract = "Derivatives of functions given in the form of largescale simulation codes are
frequently used in computational science and engineering. Examples include design optimization,
parameter estimation, solution of nonlinear systems, and inverse problems. In this note we address
the computation of derivatives of a parallel computational fluid dynamics code by automatic
differentiation. More precisely, we are interested in the derivatives of the flow field around a
threedimensional airfoil with respect to the angle of attack and the yaw angle. We discuss
strategies for transforming MPI commands by the forward and reverse modes of automatic
differentiation and report performance results on a Sun~Fire~E2900.",
