Optimized higher-order automatic differentiation for the Faddeeva function

Published: 29 Nov 2019 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/76gp8sd2z3.1

Description of this data

Considerable research efforts have been directed at implementing the Faddeeva function w ( z ) and its derivatives with respect to z , but these did not consider the key computing issue of a possible dependence of z on some variable t . The general case is to differentiate the compound function w ( z ( t ) ) = w ∘ z ( t ) with respect to t by applying the chain rule for a first order derivative, or Faà di Bruno’s formula for higher-order ones. Higher-order automatic differentiation (HOAD) is ...
