Class NumericalDerivativeForward

java.lang.Object
org.ddogleg.optimization.derivative.NumericalDerivativeForward
All Implemented Interfaces:
FunctionStoS

public class NumericalDerivativeForward
extends Object
implements FunctionStoS
Finite difference numerical gradient calculation using forward equation. Forward difference equation, f'(x) = f(x+h)-f(x)/h. Scaling is taken in account by h based upon the magnitude of the elements in variable x.

NOTE: If multiple input parameters are modified by the function when a single one is changed numerical derivatives aren't reliable.
