The ad package
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 1.3
Dependency bump to be compatible with ghc 7.4.1 and mtl 2.1
Work on diff (**2) 0
Changes since 1.2
Compiles with template haskell 2.6, changed interface to comply with the lack of Eq and Show as superclasses of Num in the new GHC.
Changes since 1.1.3
Made primal calculations strict where possible.
Changes since 1.1.0
Introduced a much faster topological sort into the reverse mode AD implementation by Anthony Cowley. This fixes a space leak and a stack overflow problem on very large (>2000 variable) problem sets.
Made bound calculations in reverse mode more strict.
Changes since 1.0.0
Changed the way Show was derived to comply with changes in instance resolution in ghc >= 7.0 && <= 7.1
Changes since 0.45.0
Converted Stream to use the external comonad package
Changes since 0.44.5
Added Halley's method
Changes since 0.40.0
Fixed bug fix for '(/)' :: (Mode s, Fractional a) => AD s a
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
