Abstract

The C++ package ADOL-C described in this paper facilitates the evaluation of first and higher derivatives of vector functions that are defined by computer programs written in C or C++. The numerical values of derivative vectors are obtained free of truncation errors at mostly a small multiple of the run time and a fix small multiple random access memory required by the given function evaluation program. Derivative matrices are obtained by columns, by rows or in sparse format. This tutorial describes the source code modification required for the application of ADOL-C, the most frequently used drivers to evaluate derivatives and some recent developments.
