How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Differentiation is ubiquitous in high energy physics, for instance in minimization algorithms and statistical analysis, in detector alignment and calibration, and in theory. Automatic differentiation (AD) avoids well-known limitations in round-offs and speed, which symbolic and numerical differentiation suffer from, by transforming the source code...
Automatic Differentiation Differentiation is the process of finding a derivative, which measures how a function changes as its input changes. Derivatives can be evaluated with machine precision accuracy through a method called automatic differentiation. Unlike other methods for differentiation, including numerical and symbolic, automatic differenti...
