- Publisher's Summary
- This concise text introduces engineering and computer science students to Fortran programming. The text stresses elementary numerical methods as the primary examples for learning Fortran - an approach of special interest to engineers. The emphasis is on Fortran 77 while providing an introduction to Fortran 90 constructs as appropriate. A final chapter gives a more detailed introduction to Fortran 90, as well as some older, obsolete Fortran features which are necessary to read and understand many Fortran programs. All the basic constructs of Fortran 77 are introduced early (chapter 2) with the more advanced or tedious details delayed until later (chapter 3). Discussion of rounding, discretization, and convergence errors as appropriate to the numerical methods being discussed is included.
