Provenance-integrated adaptation of numerical approximations of differential equation models

Project Description

This project explores how to leverage metadata collected a priori and during the execution of a simulation of a differential equation model, with the goal of using these metadata to adapt, improve and predict the simulation. Such metadata, commonly referred to as provenance, include ‘low-level’ performance metrics obtained by monitoring convergence rate, runtime, or memory consumption as well as novel ‘high-level’ measures and derived metrics that help quantify the estimated difficulty of a solution, or the similarity of tasks / components in different simulations. We will contribute novel methods and measures to capture these metadata as well as corresponding analysis algorithms to ultimately advance the fundamental problems of deciding when a (possibly expensive) provenance capture is useful to improve the overall performance or to enable more informed design decisions; and of adapting parameter settings to a given problem. The results of this project will pave the way towards multi-adaptive simulations, in particular in project networks 5 and 7. Furthermore, the project delivers input for SimTech's openDASH data and software hub, and thus contributes towards reproducibility and traceability of simulations.
