Sensitivity analysis of partial differential equations with application to reaction and diffusion processes


Methods for the computation of sensitivity coefficients for constant, spatially varying, and temporally varying parameters in parabolic partial differential equations characteristic of reaction and diffusion processes are developed. Computational requirements associated with the methods are estimated, and the methods are applied to the sensitivity analysis of atmospheric diffusion.
