no, you can have branches in the constraints or the objective. However,
you have to take special care if the branch conditions depend on the
variables. Fur this purpose, ADOL-C provides the so-called
condassign statement. Please check the manual of ADOL-C for the
coding of such branches and give it a try.

If you still have problems using condassigns please email again.

Best regards
