Welcome to the Automatic Differentiation in MATLAB homepage
providing online information on our practical training in automatic
differentiation in MATLAB for students with Vordiplom (summer 2006).
This lab is designed to introduce techniques of automatic differentiation.
Automatic differentiation (AD) enhances a given program code by expressions to
compute the derivatives along with the normal program flow. MATLAB was choosen
to simplify teaching, to concentrate on the concepts of AD and to not get
distracted by programming language deficiencies like memory allocation.
At the start of the term basics of MATLAB and AD are introduced in a two day
block course. In the practical sessions during the term the techniques
introduced are elaborated by hands-on examples.
This lab is part of the Vertiefungsfach
Our institute is not responsible for the admission procedure.
Admission was granted by the computer science department.
The deadline for the registration has passed.
Students of Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or Computational Engineering Science are admitted if they have the equivalent of a Vordiplom.
