Former Chapters 1 and 2 have been combined; historical material deleted; and data representation material has been moved to an appendix.
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.
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.
