This paper presents the procedure of Automatic Differentiation, which provides an efficient and accurate way to compute derivatives. Step-by-step implementation is shown for two examples. Numerical results indicate that the speed-up achieved can be considerable, when the methodology is applied to a functional where the number of inputs is much larger compared to the number of outputs.

Academic and mind bogling. Pretty useless for practical purposes

Anne, was not able to get the paper. Academic and mind-boggling? Ok, but I might have some practical uses for it.
