Detailed Description

Concrete class that provides a concrete implementation of the computeDfDp() method of the LOCA::Continuation::AbstractGroup using first-order finite differencing.

The finite-differencing calculations are actually implemented by the LOCA::DerivUtils class, and a custom DerivUtils object can be passed through the constructor of this class. However, in the future the calculations encapsulated in the DerivUtils class may be incorporated directly into this class and other finite-differencing child classes.

NOX::Abstract::Group::ReturnType LOCA::Continuation::FiniteDifferenceGroup::computeDfDp int  paramID,
NOX::Abstract::Vector result
[virtual]
 

Compute $\partial F/\partial p$ where $p$ is the parameter indexed by paramID.

The calculation is implemented by calling the corresponding LOCA::DerivUtils::computeDfDp() method of the passed LOCA::DerivUtils object.

Implements LOCA::Continuation::AbstractGroup.
