The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is starting to use vivlabs ADC
A research group at the University of Chicago chose vivlabs C/C++ software solutions for their computational intensive quantitative marketing models. « I ran some basic tests on Mac OS X and liked what I saw. ADC seems to be significantly faster than ADOL-C. »
Economics Professor signs contract with vivlabs LLC
Faculty from the Economics Department at the University of Pennsylvania has purchased vivlabs ADF for Fortran codes in order to solve minimization problems of a function with more than 3000 arguments. « We were surprised, how easy it was to integrade ADF into our parallel computing environment. »
Cornell University scientists select vivlabs ADC
Scientists at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are starting to utilize vivlabs ADC to advance their most challanging research projects. « We are replacing our hand code solution with AD technology, because vivlabs AD can handle our Jacobian and Hessian matrices with 10,000 x 10,000 entries efficiently. Obviously, ADC is faster and easier to use than any other solution we have tried before. »
Honeywell's UOP chooses vivlabs ADF to excell its Refining Technology
UOP LLC, a Honeywell Company, has selected vivlabs as a premier provider for its large scale Automatic Differentiation computations. UOP is recognized for its innovations in refining to meet global energy challenges.
In today's technologically driven industries, Research & Development units are rapidly advancing in simulating real world processes ever more realistically. We are witnessing a revolution in both the design of products as well as the testing and verification process, which is increasingly performed before the actual product comes into existence. Computer simulations of this kind are only feasible if they yield answers within a short time-frame: however, equally important is the development time it takes for the R&D team to generate such simulations.
At the heart of these new and growing advancements is the need to solve millions of mathematical equations for which evaluating first and second-order derivatives are necessary. The ability to calculate these derivatives accurately, efficiently and automatically can give you a substantial advantage over the competition.
