Rust Casadi Interface

Build Status

This is an interface to CasADi functions of the form phi(u; p), where u is a decision variable and p a parameter.

  • Using CasADi's MATLAB or Python interface, you may define a cost function
  • We provide helper functions which generate C code for the given function and its Jacobian
  • Then icasadi offers a convenient interface to the C code from Rust
  • This is a no-std library which can be used on embedded devices
  • And icasadi can be used in embedded numerical optimization modules written in Rust

This library is available on crates.io at https://crates.io/crates/icasadi

Code generation in Python

Coming very soon

Code generation in MATLAB

Here is an example of such a function (MATLAB example)

% File: matlab/example.m
nu = 10;                           % number of decision variables
np = 2;                            % number of parameters 

u = casadi.SX.sym('u', nu);        % decision variables
p = casadi.SX.sym('p', np);        % parameters

phi = (p'*p) * cos(sin(u))' * u;   % cost function phi(u; p)

We may then create C code for this function and its Jacobian using

[cost, grad_cost] = casadi_generate_c_code(u, p, phi);

This will create two functions:

  • cost : which maps (u, p) to phi(u; p),
  • grad_cost : the Jacobian matrix of phi with respect to u evaluated at (u, p)

Here is an example of use:

// File: main.rs
extern crate icasadi;

fn main() {
    let u = [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, -5.0, 1.0, 10.0, 14.0, 17.0, 3.0, 5.0];
    let p = [1.0, -1.0];

    let mut cost_value = 0.0;
    let mut jac = [0.0; 10];
    icasadi_cost(u, p, &phival);       // compute the cost
    icasadi_grad(u, p, cost_jacobian); // compute the Jacobian of the cost

    println!("cost value = {}", cost_value);
    println!("jacobian   = {:#?}", jac);
