Appropriate Synonym for ‘accelerated’ in thesis title

I have the following thesis title:

On the acceleration of X Methods: superfast Y Solver for Z

My thesis goal and reached objective is “Improving X and using it into Y, which becomes very fast”.

I believe it conveys the major information of my thesis, meaning that I have developed an acceleration protocol for this particular solver. This solver has now become VERY fast (more than exponentially), and I want to convey this information.

However, I am not happy with the ‘superfast’ part, I find it a bit comic-like but it’s the only word that I could think of that fits in this title formulation.

I tried to find synonyms or single-word expressions for

  • ‘accelerated’ (can’t use this, repetition)
  • ‘very fast’ (not keen on using adverbs by describing a solver)
  • ‘augmented’ (not contains the acceleration part)

All in all, I think there is a better word than ‘superfast’.


This is the synonym research I’ve conducted:

  • ‘accelerated’ -> ‘sped up’, ‘hastened up’ (ugly)
  • ‘very fast’ -> ‘agile’, ‘nimble’, ‘quick’, ‘swift’, ‘rapid’ (still not convinced, because it applies to a solver, a program, that has been tuned to be amazingly fast)
  • ‘augmented’ -> ‘boost’, ‘enhance’, ‘improve’, ‘upgrade’ (improved, too generic)


Both rapid and high-speed spring to mind, conveying the intended meaning.

You can also rephrase the first part, allowing you to use “accelerated” later.

(i.e “On the rapid development of kinetic Monte Carlo Methods: accelerated Master Equation Solver for gas phase chemistry”)
