A new algorithm for the index determination in DAEs by Taylor series using Algorithmic Differentiation
We present an approach for determining the tractability index using truncated polynomial arithmetic. In particular, computing the index this way generates a sequence of matrices that contains itself derivatives. We realize the time differentiations using Algorithmic Differentiation techniques, specially by using the standard ADOL-C package with which calculating the derivatives becomes a simple shift and scaling of coefficients. We present the theory supporting the procedure we propose, as well as the implementation issues behind it to provide a convenient interface to the standard ADOL-C functionality. We give also examples of academic and practical problems and report several experimental results we have obtained with them.
