Getting Started with ADOL-C

09061.WaltherAndrea.Paper.2084.pdf (0.1 MB)


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.
