Automatic Differentiation of programs gives sensitivities or gradients, that are useful for many types of applications:

We will detail some of them in the next sections. These applications require an AD tool that differentiates programs written in classical imperative languages, fortran77, fortran95, c, or c++. We also consider our AD tool tapenade as a platform to implement other program analyses and transformations. tapenade does the tedious job of building the internal representation of the program, and then provides an API to build new tools on top of this representation. One application of tapenade is therefore to build prototypes of new program analyses.
