Syntax
f.Dependent(y)  o = f.Order()  m = f.Memory()  s = f.Size()  t = f.taylor_size()  u = f.use_VecAD()  v = f.size_taylor()  w = f.capacity_taylor() 
Purpose
The ADFun<Base> functions documented here have been deprecated; i.e., they are no longer approved of and may be removed from some future version of CppAD.

Dependent
A recording of and AD of Base operation sequence is started by a call of the form       Independent(x)  If there is only one such recording at the current time, you can use f.Dependent(y) in place of       f.Dependent(x, y)  See Dependent for a description of this operation.

Deprecated 2007-08-07
This syntax was deprecated when CppAD was extended to allow for more than one AD<Base> recording to be active at one time. This was necessary to allow for multiple threading applications.

Order
The result o has prototype       size_t o  and is the order of the previous forward operation using the function f . This is the highest order of the Taylor coefficients that are currently stored in f .

Deprecated 2006-03-31
Zero order corresponds to function values being stored in f . In the future, we would like to be able to erase the function values so that f uses less memory. In this case, the return value of Order would not make sense. Use size_order to obtain the number of Taylor coefficients currently stored in the ADFun object f (which is equal to the order plus one).

Memory
The result       size_t m  and is the number of memory units (sizeof) required for the information currently stored in f . This memory is returned to the system when the destructor for f is called.

Deprecated 2006-03-31
It used to be the case that an ADFun object just kept increasing its buffers to the maximum size necessary during its lifetime. It would then return the buffers to the system when its destructor was called. This is no longer the case, an ADFun object now returns memory when it no longer needs the values stored in that memory. Thus the Memory function is no longer well defined.

Size
The result s has prototype       size_t s  and is the number of variables in the operation sequence plus the following: one for a phantom variable with tape address zero, one for each component of the domain that is a parameter. The amount of work and memory necessary for computing function values and derivatives using f is roughly proportional to s .

Deprecated 2006-04-03
There are other sizes attached to an ADFun object, for example, the number of operations in the sequence. In order to avoid confusion with these other sizes, use size_var to obtain the number of variables in the operation sequence.

taylor_size
The result t has prototype       size_t t  and is the number of Taylor coefficient orders currently calculated and stored in the ADFun object f .

Deprecated 2006-06-17
This function has been replaced by size_order .

The result u has prototype       bool u  If it is true, the AD of Base operation sequence stored in f contains VecAD operands. Otherwise u is false.

Deprecated 2006-04-08
You can instead use       u = f.size_VecAD() > 0 
size_taylor
The result v has prototype       size_t v  and is the number of Taylor coefficient orders currently calculated and stored in the ADFun object f .

Deprecated 2014-03-18
This function has been replaced by size_order .

capacity_taylor
The result w has prototype       size_t w  and is the number of Taylor coefficient orders currently allocated in the ADFun object f .

Deprecated 2014-03-18
This function has been replaced by capacity_order .
