Bug#742899: ITP: cppad -- Automatic Differentiation (AD) of C++ algorithms

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Miles Lubin <miles.lubin@gmail.com>

* Package name    : cppad
  Version         : 20140301
  Upstream Author : Bradley M. Bell <bradbell@seanet.com>
* URL             : https://projects.coin-or.org/CppAD/
* License         : GPL-3 and EPL (dual licensed)
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Automatic Differentiation (AD) of C++ algorithms

Given a C++ algorithm that computes function values, CppAD generates an
algorithm that computes its exact derivative values.

CppAD is used in a number of scientific computing applications to automate the
computation of exact derivatives of codes implemented in C++. It is a pure
header library with no binaries. CppAD is similar in concept to the adolc
package already in Debian. I intend to co-maintain with Barak Pearlmutter under
Debian Science.
