ADIC2: Development of a component source transformation system for differentiating C and C++. We present a new tool, ADIC2, for automatic differentiation (AD) of C and C++ code through source-to-source transformation. ADIC2 is the successor of the ADIC differentiation tool, which supports forward mode AD of C and a small subset of C++. ADIC2 was completely redesigned and reimplemented as part of the OpenAD software framework, resulting in a robust, flexible, and extensible tool for differentiating C and some features of C++, with plans for full support of C++ in the near future. We discuss some of the challenges in creating AD tools for C and C++ in general and describe the component approach employed in the design and implementation of ADIC2.
