PCOMP reads symbolically defined nonlinear functions that are composed of standard elementary functions, and precompiles them. Subsequently function and, in particular, derivative values up to order two can be computed directly, i.e. without numerical approximation or symbolic differentiation. Alternatively FORTRAN-code for function and gradient evaluation can be generated automatically by PCOMP.
