This package holds the main interfaces and basic building block classes
dealing with differentiation.
The core class is DerivativeStructure
which holds the value and the differentials of a function. This class
handles some arbitrary number of free parameters and arbitrary differentiation order. It is used
both as the input and the output type for the UnivariateDifferentiableFunction
interface. Any differentiable function should implement this
interface.
The UnivariateDerivative1
,
UnivariateDerivative2
and
Gradient
classes are more restricted
implementation of classes holding the value and the differentials of a function. These classes
handle only either one free parameter (i.e. univariate functions) with derivation orders 1 or 2,
or several free parameters with derivation order 1. As they arefar less general than DerivativeStructure
, they have less
overhead and are more efficient in their respective domains.
The UnivariateFunctionDifferentiator
interface defines a way to differentiate a simple UnivariateFunction
and get a UnivariateDifferentiableFunction
.
Similar interfaces also exist for multivariate functions and for vector or matrix valued functions.
