Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 18)

Sometimes we have a sequence of Activity Regions with increasing values of Statement Current, like depicted here:

The boundaries of regions may be blurry and arbitrarily drawn. Nevertheless, the current is visibly increasing or decreasing, hence the name of this pattern: Trace Acceleration, by analogy with physical acceleration, second-order derivative. We can also metaphorically use here the notion of a partial derivative for trace statement current and acceleration for Threads of Activity and Adjoint Threads of Activity but whether it is useful remains to be seen.
