ADMB Project

ADMB-12.0
Released December 21, 2017


Overview

The ADMB (Automatic Differentiation Model Builder) software suite is an environment for nonlinear statistical modeling enabling rapid model development, numerical stability, fast and efficient computation, and high accuracy parameter estimates. AD Model Builder is a high level language built around the AUTODIF Library, a C++ language extension which transparently implements reverse mode automatic differentiation. A closely related software package, ADMB-RE, implements random effects in nonlinear models.

ADMB is an open source project. Read the AD Model Builder LICENSE.
