The success of Fortran as the predominant language in the field of scientific and numerical computing is due, in part, to its steady evolution. The latest version, Fortran 95, was published in 1997 and included new features from Fortran 90 for array processing, abstract data types, modules, and pointers, as well as additional features to keep it aligned with High Performance Fortran. This book is a revision of Fortran 90/95 Explained. The Fortran 95 material is now fully integrated with the material on Fortran 90, while the text carefully maintains the distinction between the two language levels. It include new chapters on two important changes: enhanced data types and floating-point exception handling. A complete and authoritative description of Fortran 90 and 95, this book is intended for both new and experienced users.

Fortran remains one of the principal languages used in scientific, numerical, and engineering programming, and a series of revisions to the standard versions of the language have progressively enhanced its power. The latest standard - Fortran 2003 - greatly extends the power of the language, by introducing object-oriented concepts, interoperability with C, better integration with operating systems and many other enhancements. This text details all these new features. Fortran 95/2003 Explained, significantly expands on the second edition of Fortran 90/95 Explained (also published by Oxford University Press): the opening chapters contain a complete description of the Fortran 95 language and are followed by descriptions of three formally approved extensions; six completely new chapters describe in detail the features that are new in Fortran 2003, but the distinction between the various language levels is kept clear throughout. Authored by three leading experts in the development of the language, this is a complete and authoritative description of the two languages (Fortran 95 and Fortran 2003). It is intended for new and existing users of Fortran, and for all those involved in scientific and numerical computing. It is suitable as textbook for teaching and, with its extensive index, as a handy reference for practitioners.

The second volume of the Fortran Numerical Recipes series, Numerical Recipes in Fortran 90 contains a detailed introduction to the Fortran 90 language and to the basic concepts of parallel programming, plus source code for all routines from the second edition of Numerical Recipes. This volume does not repeat any of the discussion of what individual programs actually do, the mathematical methods they utilize, or how to use them.

Fortran marches on, remaining one of the principal programming languages used in high-performance scientific, numerical, and engineering computing. A series of significant revisions to the standard versions of the language have progressively enhanced its capabilities, and the latest standard - Fortran 2018 - includes many additions and improvements. This edition of Modern Fortran Explained expands on the last. Given the release of updated versions of Fortran compilers, the separate descriptions of Fortran 2003 and Fortran 2008 have been incorporated into the main text, which thereby becomes a unified description of the full Fortran 2008 version of the language. This clearer standard has allowed many deficiencies and irregularities in the earlier language versions to be resolved. Four new chapters describe the additional features of Fortran 2018, with its enhancements to coarrays for parallel programming, interoperability with C, IEEE arithmetic, and various other improvements. Written by leading experts in the field, two of whom have actively contributed to Fortran 2018, this is a complete and authoritative description of Fortran in its latest form. It is intended for new and existing users of the language, and for all those involved in scientific and numerical computing. It is suitable as a textbook for teaching and, with its index, as a handy reference for practitioners.

An easy-to-use handbook for experienced programmers and scientists, this highly readable survey offers a concise but thorough description of the whole of Fortran 77, including practical advice on program portability, design, testing and documentation. The book benefits from the author's long association with the Fortran standardization committee (X3J3), and his extensive experience with large-scale processing in high-energy physics. Since Fortran 77 is the only practical choice for sizable scientific numerical and engineering applications, this will be an invaluable handbook for computer scientists working with engineers and physicists engaged in large-scale computation.

The F programming language is a dramatic new development in scientific programming. Building on the well-established strengths of the Fortran family of languages, it is carefully crafted to be both safe and regular, whilst retaining the enormously powerful numerical capabilities of its parentlanguage, Fortran 90, as well as its data abstraction capability. Thus, an array language becomes available as part of a medium-size, widely-available language for the first time. In this respect, the language is clearly superior to older ones such as Pascal, C, and Basic. The book begins with anintroductory chapter, then describes, in turn, the features of the language: language elements, expressions and assignments, control constructs, program units and procedures, array features, intrinsic procedures, and the input/output facilities. It is completed by six appendices, including thedifference between F and Fortran 90, and solutions to most of the exercises. In the absence of a formal standard for F, this book is the defining document for the language, setting out the complete syntax and semantics of the language in a readable but thorough way. It is essential reading forusers of F.

FORTRAN has always been intended to be an efficient high-level language, and its adherence to this original design aim has helped it to achieve a dominant position in scientific, engineering and other areas of computing. However, advice on how to obtain the best possible performance has, until now, been scattered through the literature, in brief articles, detailed reports on specific computers, and very general and often superficial chapters in books on FORTRAN programming.**This book, for the first time, deals with the whole topic in a systematic fashion, and every effort has been taken to include only the most up-to-date information, and to present it in a way which clearly distinguishes between the different techniques required for the various types of compiler.**The book begins with an extensive introduction to the subject, including a justification for optimizing, explanations of the hardware of modern computers, and the optimizing techniques used by FORTRAN 77 compilers. The preparatory work required before optimizing begins is covered, followed by a detailed discussion of the procedures which may be applied to source code to achieve the highest efficiency of execution, according to the type of compiler used. IBM and CDC compilers are covered in detail. Program portability is discussed and the use of super-computers introduced. The plans for future FORTRAN are presented. A widely used layout-program appears in an appendix.**FROM THE PREFACE: Throughout its more than two decades of history, one of FORTRAN's main strengths as a programming language has been its adherence to its original design aim of providing efficient program execution. However, advice on how to obtain the best possible performance has hitherto been scattered, being contained either in reports on specific computers and compilers (e.g. Smith et al., 1977), or in parts of various books of rather too general a nature. This book brings together for the first time a detailed survey of the means by which FORTRAN source code may be optimized, and includes other background information which should enable the reader to understand better how a FORTRAN program is processed by a compiler, and subsequently executed. As such, it is intended to help all those who write or run FORTRAN programs to make efficient use of computer resources without making unjustifiably great demands on their own time.**This book should be useful as a reference work for anyone engaged in FORTRAN programming on any scale greater than simple, single-shot, short jobs, and as a supplementary text in any course on FORTRAN programming beyond the preliminary stages.
