24 Emmanuel M. Tadjouddine In principle, AD preserves the semantics of the input code provided this has not been altered prior to AD transformation. Given this semi-automatic usage of AD, can we trust AD for safety-critical applications? Although the chain rule of calculus and the analyses used in AD are proved correct, the correctness of the AD generated code is tricky to establish. First, AD may locally replace some part B of the input code by B that is not observationally equivalent to B even though both are semantically equivalent in that particular context.
