English abstract:
We define a novel approach for optimizing the use of libraries within
applications. We propose that library-defined abstractions be
classified to support their automated optimization and by leveraging
these additional semantics we enable the library specific optimization
of application codes. We believe that such an approach entails the use
of formal methods.

We describe ROSE, a framework for building source-to-source
translators, used for the high-level optimization of scientific
applications. It is a common perception that performance is inversely
proportional to the level of abstraction. Our work shows that this is
not the case if the additional semantics of library-defined
abstractions can be leveraged. ROSE allows the recognition of such
abstractions and the optimization of their use in applications. We
show how ROSE can be used to utilize the additional semantics within
the compile-time optimization and present promising results.
