U. Naumann and A. Walther, "An Introduction to Using Software Tools for Automatic Differentiation," Technical Memorandum ANL/MCS-TM-254, July 2003. [pdf]
We give a gentle introduction to using various software tools for automatic differentiation (AD). Ready-to-use examples are discussed, and links to further information are presented. Our target audience includes all those who are looking for a straightforward way to get started using the available AD technology. The document is dynamic in the sense that its content will be updated as the AD software evolves.
