Abstract: MAD is a Matlab library of functions and utilities for the automatic differentiation of Matlab functions/statements via operator and function overloading. Currently the forward mode of automatic differentiation is supported via the fmad class. For a single directional derivative objects of the fmad class use Matlab arrays of the same size for a variable's value and its directional derivative. Multiple directional derivatives are stored in objects of the derivvec class allowing for an internal 2-D, matrix storage so allowing the use of sparse matrix storage for derivatives and ensuring efficient linear combination of derivative vectors via high-level Matlab functions. This user guide covers: installation of MAD on UNIX and PC platforms using TOMLAB /MAD basic use of the forward mode for differentiating expressions and functions advanced use of the forward mode including: dynamic propagation of sparse derivatives, sparse derivatives via compression, differentiating implicitly defined functions, control of dependencies, use of high-level interfaces for solving ODEs and optimization problems outside of the TOMLAB framework, differentiating black-box functions for which derivatives are known.
