description:
Forward-, reverse- and mixed- mode automatic differentiation combinators with a common API.
.
Type-level \"branding\" is used to both prevent the end user from confusing infinitesimals
and to limit unsafe access to the implementation details of each Mode.
.
Each mode has a separate module full of combinators.
.
* @Numeric.AD.Mode.Forward@ provides basic forward-mode AD. It is good for computing simple derivatives.
.
* @Numeric.AD.Mode.Reverse@ uses benign side-effects to compute reverse-mode AD. It is good for computing gradients in one pass.
.
* @Numeric.AD.Mode.Sparse@ computes a sparse forward-mode AD tower. It is good for higher derivatives or large numbers of outputs.
.
* @Numeric.AD.Mode.Tower@ computes a dense forward-mode AD tower useful for higher derivatives of single input functions.
.
* @Numeric.AD.Mode.Mixed@ computes using whichever mode or combination thereof is suitable to each individual combinator. This mode is the default, re-exported by @Numeric.AD@
.
.
While not every mode can provide all operations, the following basic operations are supported, modified as
appropriate by the suffixes below:
.
* 'grad' computes the gradient (partial derivatives) of a function at a point.
.
* 'jacobian' computes the Jacobian matrix of a function at a point.
.
* 'diff' computes the derivative of a function at a point.
.
* 'du' computes a directional derivative of a function at a point.
.
* 'hessian' computes the Hessian matrix (matrix of second partial derivatives) of a function at a point.
.
The following suffixes alter the meanings of the functions above as follows:
.
* @\'@ -- also return the answer
.
* @With@ lets the user supply a function to blend the input with the output
.
* @F@ is a version of the base function lifted to return a 'Traversable' (or 'Functor') result
.
* @s@ means the function returns all higher derivatives in a list or f-branching 'Stream'
.
* @T@ means the result is transposed with respect to the traditional formulation.
.
* @0@ means that the resulting derivative list is padded with 0s at the end.
.
Changes since 0.40.0
.
* Bug fix in the derivative calculated for @'(/)' :: (Mode s, Fractional a) => AD s a@
.
* Improved documentation
.
* Regularized naming conventions
.
* Exposed 'Id', probe, and lower methods via @Numeric.AD.Types@
.
* Removed monadic combinators
.
* Retuned the 'Mixed' mode jacobian calculations to only require a 'Functor'-based result.
.
* Added unsafe variadic 'vgrad', 'vgrad'', and 'vgrads' combinators
