I'm forwarding the following question that ended up in the wrong section:
looking for an introduction of AD (both using python and C++). The user guide contains only one page w/o examples. Is there a worked out example/s available to get started ?
I have created a ticket for expanding this section in the users' guide. I will update it in the coming days and add some information about how to use the different modes of AD in CasADi. Right now we are in the process of moving CasADi from Sourceforge to Github. This means that this forum will be gone (we will use a google group https://groups.google.com/d/forum/casadi-users instead). When this process is done, I will be able to update the user's guide.
The users guide has now been updated with more information on how to use the AD.
