We investigate the automatic differentiation of hybrid models, viz. models that may contain delays, logical tests and discontinuities or loops. We consider differentiation with respect to parameters, initial conditions or the time. We emphasize the case of a small number of derivations and iterated differentiations are mostly treated with a foccus on high order iterations of the same derivation. The models we consider may involve arithmetic operations, elementary functions, logical tests but… CONTINUE READING
