ADIFOR 2.0
Automatic Differentiation of Fortran

A collaborative project between the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory and the Center for Research on Parallel Computation at Rice University.

 

ADIFOR 2.0 (Revision D) is now available on the Web for educational and non-profit research and for commercial evaluation. ADIFOR is supported on the following platforms: Sun (SunOS-5.x, SunOS-4.x), SGI (IRIX), HP (Hpux), IBM (AIX) and Intel x86 (Windows 95/NT and Linux86.)

The ADIFOR pages are mirrored both at the Mathematics and Computer Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory and the Center for Research on Parallel Computation at Rice University.

ADIFOR Overview & Applications

ADIFOR is a tool for the automatic differentiation of Fortran 77 programs. Given a Fortran 77 source code and a user's specification of dependent and independent variables, ADIFOR will generate an augmented derivative code that computes the partial derivatives of all of the specified dependent variables with respect to all of the specified independent variables in addition to the original result.

The ADIFOR 2.0 system offers the following features:

Full Fortran 77 Support

Flexible Intrinsic Handler

Transparent Sparsity Support

Applications of ADIFOR are described in a collection of short highlights.
