Abstract
The software system PCOMP uses automatic differentiation to calculate derivatives of functions that are defined by the user in a modeling language similar to Fortran. This symbolical representation is converted into an intermediate code, which can be interpreted to calculate function and derivative values at run-time within machine accuracy. Furthermore, it is possible to generate Fortran code for function and gradient evaluation, which has to be compiled and linked separately. The first version of PCOMP was introduced in Dobmann et al. [1995]. In this article, we describe a series of extensions and additional features that have been implemented in the meantime.
