Automatic Differentiation and Parallel Processing in Optimisation

- Technical report -
 

Author(s)
Lawrence C. W. Dixon

Institution
The Numerical Optimisation Center, Hatfield Polytechnic

Year
1987

Abstract
The concepts of automatic differentiation, see [Rall1981ADT], and of parallel processing are applied to problems in optimisation. A discussion is presented of how the advent of the Ada programming language on parallel processing machines may transform the solution of practical optimisation problems, see [Dixon1987TUo]. The author also discusses the difficulties associated with calculating the derivative values if automatic differentiation is not used.
