8 Basics of Automatic Differentiation Introduction Automatic differentiation... Is also known as computational differentiation, algorithmic differentiation, and differentiation of algorithms; Is a systematic application of the familar rules of calculus to computer programs, yielding programs for the propagation of numerical values of first, second, or higher order derivatives; Traverses the code list (or computational graph) in the forward mode, the reverse mode, or a combination of the two; Typically is implemented by using either source code transformation or operator overloading; Is a process for evaluating derivatives which depends only on an algorithmic specification of the function to be differentiated.

21 Second-Order AD Module Hessian Performance Twice ADIFOR, first produces a gradient code with ADIFOR 2.0, and then runs the gradient code through ADIFOR again. Forward, implements the forward mode. Adaptive Forward, uses the forward mode, with preaccumulation at a statement level where deemed appropriate. Sparse Taylor Series, uses the Taylor series mode to compute the needed entries.

28 An Application in OCPs Implementation Details Step 1 Automatic derivation of the first and second order sensitivity equations to construct a full augmented IVP. Creates corresponding program subroutines in a format suitable to a standard IVP solver. Step 2 Numerical solution of the outer NLP using a truncated –Newton method which solves bound-constrained problems.
29 An Application in OCPs Two approaches with TN method TN algorithm with finite difference scheme TN algorithm with the exact Hessian vector product calculation It uses the second order sensitivity equations defined in Eq. (5a) to obtain the exact Hessian vector product. (Earlier methods of the CVP type were based on first order sensitivities only, i.e. Gradient based algorithms mostly). This approach has been shown more robust and reliable due to the use of exact second order information. Gradient evaluation requires the solution of the first order sensitivity system Gradient information is used to approximate the Hessian vector product with a finite difference scheme
