Solving Problems with a High-Level Programming Language

  • David R. Brooks
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Computer Science book series (UTCS)


This chapter presents a general approach to using computers to solve certain kinds of computational problems. It describes instructions and data types common to structured programming with high-level procedural languages and defines a specific strategy for developing algorithms that can easily be translated into a language such as Fortran. It includes a short Fortran program that you can copy and execute on the computer you will be using for a course based on this text.
