The application of automatic differentiation to problems in engineering analysis.

*(English)*Zbl 0842.73079Summary: Automatic differentiation is a technique of computing the derivative of a function or a subroutine written in a higher-level language such as FORTRAN or C. Significant progress has been made in this field in the last few years. Here, we get a short exposition of automatic differentiation and demonstrate its applicability to several fields of engineering analysis.
