About this book


Introduction to Programming with Fortran contains:

lots of clear and simple examples highlighting the key language features of the most recent versions of Fortran – Fortran 2003, 95 and 90.

practical examples based on ISO TR 15580 and ISO TR 15581 which are widely supported and cover the ISO TR on Enhanced Modules – particularly important to large code suites

common problems that occur when programming which are highlighted via clear examples and solutions

Introduction to Programming with Fortran is an essential introduction for beginners as well as a concise reference for professionals.

Overall the book gives a very effective hands-on coverage of Fortran, valuable to students and practitioners alike.

Ian Chivers and Jane Sleightholme are the joint owners of comp-fortran-90, which is a lively forum for the exchange of technical details of the Fortran language. Both authors have been involved in teaching and supporting Fortran and related areas for over 20 years and their latest book reflects the lessons that have been learnt from their experience with Fortran over the last few years.

From the reviews:

"Fortran is considered nowadays by many people a last living dinosaur in the multifarious realm of programming languages. … It targets both the complete novice who wants to learn the fundamentals of using Fortran as well as the programmer who wants to migrate to the newer Fortran versions. … Furthermore, the user with prior basic Fortran programming experience will certainly benefit from the merits of this book, which include the broad range of topics covered beyond common textbook presentation, the plethora of examples … ." (Anselm H. C. Horn, Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, 2006)
