Abstract : A study and pursuant development is described of a digital computer program for the computation of transfer function sensitivities in a symbolic form suitable for storage and subsequent repetitive numerical evaluation over a range of frequencies or parameter values. The algorithm is implemented in conjunction with the FORTRAN IBM 360/67 Network Analysis for Systems Applications Program (NASAP) developed by R. S. Schwartz at Northeastern University. Several example problems, as well as suggestions for possible improvement of the algorithm and its extrapolation into the areas of optimization and automatic design, are included. (Author)
