  • the discussion of FORTRAN is moved earlier in the text—so students can begin writing programs in Chapter 1.
    • Former Chapters 1 and 2 have been combined; historical material deleted; and data representation material has been moved to an appendix.

  • Special sections at the end of each chapter, and a separate Chapter 13, provide an introduction to features that will be included in ANSI standard Fortran 90.
    • Since many FORTRAN compilers already support some of these variations and extensions, this allows the instructor to introduce these features, knowing they're part of standard Fortran 90.

  • Programming Pointers at the ends of each chapter point out common programming pitfalls and proper design and style techniques.
  • Special Applications sections illustrate problem solving in a variety of areas. A problem is described, its specification is developed, its algorithms are designed, and a program is then developed and tested.
  • A large number of complete programs and sample runs throughout the text illustrate basic programming concepts and demonstrate good structure and style. They are selected from a wide range of areas in engineering, math and science.
  • Fortran 90 example programs inlcuded.
  • Effective pedagogical tools include: boxed items to emphasize language features; many examples of applied problem solving; quick quizzes to test understanding of basic concepts; and chapter summaries.
  • Problem material includes more than: 300 NEW Quick Quiz questions, 500 exercises, and 230 programming problems.
  • Disk containing all sample programs and data files included.

This book is a complete presentation of standard FORTRAN 77 with special applications of numerical methods in science and engineering. It surpasses the coverage of its best-selling predecessor, FORTRAN 77 for Engineers and Scientists, Third Edition, by adding a current introduction to Fortran 90. KEY TOPICS: This book emphasizes sound structured programming and software engineering principles; its clear and concise presentation is perfect for readers who possess a background in algebra, with no previous programming experience.
