The required derivatives … … 2939 2938 2940 2939 For this purpose, it is required that the externally differentiated 2941 function (for example named {\sf\em euler\_step} ) has the following signature .2940 function (for example named {\sf\em euler\_step} ) has the following signature 2942 2941 \smallskip 2943 2942 2944 2943 \noindent 2945 \hspace*{2cm}{\sf int euler\_step(int n, double *x, int m, double *y);} 2944 \hspace*{2cm}{\sf int euler\_step(int n, double *x, int m, double *y);} . 2946 2945 \medskip 2947 2946 2948 2947 \noindent 2949 Note that the formal para emters in the signature have {\sf double} type, that is,2948 Note that the formal paramters in the signature have {\sf double} type, that is, 2950 2949 they are not active as in the original program before the ADOLC type change. 2951 2950 The externally differentiated function has to 2952 be {\em registered}\footnote{we record the function pointer} using an \mbox{ADOLC} method as follows .2951 be {\em registered}\footnote{we record the function pointer} using an \mbox{ADOLC} method as follows 2953 2952 \smallskip 2954 2953 2955 2954 \noindent 2956 \hspace*{2cm}{\sf ext\_diff\_fct *edf = reg\_ext\_fct(euler\_step);} .2955 \hspace*{2cm}{\sf ext\_diff\_fct *edf = reg\_ext\_fct(euler\_step);} . 2957 2956 \smallskip 2958 2957 2959 2958 \noindent 2960 2959 This returns a pointer to an {\sf ext\_diff\_fct} instance specific to the registered function. 2961 Then, the user has to supply the function pointers for the call 2960 Then, the user has to supply the function pointers for the callback methods (for example here 2962 2961 {\sf zos\_for\_euler\_step} and {\sf fos\_rev\_euler\_step}) the user implemented 2963 to compute the derivatives as follows .2962 to compute the derivatives as follows: 2964 2963 \begin{tabbing} 2965 2964 \hspace*{2cm}\= {\sf edf$>$zos\_forward = {\em zos\_for\_euler\_step};}\\ … … 2977 2976 To facilitate the switch between active and passive versions of the parameters {\sf x} and {\sf y} 2978 2977 one has to provide (allocate) both variants.
