Developing code for computing the rst-and higher-order derivatives of a function by hand can be very time-consuming and is prone to errors. Automatic diierentiation has proven capable of producing derivative codes with very little eeort on the part of the user. Automatic diierentia-tion avoids the truncation errors characteristic of divided-diierence approximations. However, the derivative code produced by automatic diierentiation can be signiicantly less eecient than one produced by hand. This… CONTINUE READING
