Convert From an AD Type to its Base Type

Syntax
b = Value(x)

var2par

Purpose
Converts from an AD type to the corresponding base type .

x
The argument x has prototype       const AD<Base> &x 
b
The return value b has prototype       Base b 
Operation Sequence
The result of this operation is not an AD of Base object. Thus it will not be recorded as part of an AD of Base operation sequence .

Restriction
If the argument x is a variable its dependency information would not be included in the Value result (see above). For this reason, the argument x must be a parameter ; i.e., it cannot depend on the current independent variables .

Example
The file value.cpp contains an example and test of this operation.
