A classical example is the identity function y = f (x) = x coded as if x == 0 then y = 0 else y = x endif. Applying AD to this code will give f (0) = 0 in lieu of f (0) = 1. This unfortunate scenario can happen whenever a control variable in a guard (logical expression) of an IF construct or a loop is active. These scenarios can be tracked by computing the intersection between the set V (e) of variables in each guard e and the set A of active variables in the program. If V (e) ∩ A = 0/ for each guard e in the program, then the PD hypothesis holds, otherwise the PD hypothesis may be violated, in which case an AD tool should, at least, issue a warning to the user that an identified construct in the program may cause non-differentiability of the input program.

One must ensure that C1 ∼ C2 meaning C1 and C2 are semantically equivalent. To this end, we use a variant of Hoare logic called relational Hoare logic [3]. The inference rules are given in Fig. 3 and are similar to Benton’s [3]. The judgement C1 ∼ C2 : φ ⇒ ψ means simply {φ }C1 {ψ } ⇒ {φ }C2 {ψ }. In the assignment rule (asgn), the lhs variable may be different. Also, notice that the same conditional branches must be taken (see the if rule) and that loops be executed the same number of times (see the while rule) on the source and target to guarantee their semantics equivalence.
