Communications of the ACM

Year
1964

Abstract
A procedure for automatic evaluation of total and partial derivatives of arbitrary algebraic functions is presented. The numerical values of derivatives are computed without developing analytic expressions for the derivatives. The function is decomposed into a sequence of elementary expressions A library is provided for differentiating of elementary functions.
