Abstract. This paper presents the new version 2.1 of the Kinetic PreProcessor
(KPP). Taking a set of chemical reactions and their rate coefficients
as input, KPP generates Fortran90, Fortran77, Matlab, or C code for
the temporal integration of the kinetic system. Efficiency is obtained
by carefully exploiting the sparsity structures of the Jacobian and of
the Hessian. A comprehensive suite of stiff numerical integrators is
also provided. Moreover, KPP can be used to generate the tangent
linear model, as well as the continuous and discrete adjoint models of
the chemical system.
