ColPack


Summary:
ColPack is a package consisting of implementations of various graph coloring and related algorithms for compression-based computation of sparse Jacobian and Hessian matrices using an Automatic Differentiation tool. ColPack is currently interfaced with ADOL-C. The coloring capabilities can be used for purposes other than derivative matrix computation.
