Introduction to FORTRAN 77 for Scientific Computing

Introduction to FORTRAN 77 for Scientific Computing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This concise text introduces engineering and computer science students to FORTRAN programming. The text stresses elementary numerical methods as the primary examples for learning FORTRAN - an approach of special interest to engineers. The emphasis is on FORTRAN 77 while providing an introduction to FORTRAN 90 constructs as appropriate. A final chapter gives a more detailed introduction to FORTRAN 90, as well as some older, obsolete FORTRAN features which are necessary to read and understand many FORTRAN programs. ALl the basic constructs of FORTRAN 77 are introduced early (Ch. 2) with the more advanced or tedious details displayed until later (Ch. 3). Discussion of rounding, discretization, and convergence errors as appropriate to the numerical methods being discussed is included.

Book News Annotation:

Here's a study in crisis management (or, maybe, loss mitigation). The CiP data on the verso of the title page reads "$20.00." False ad laws prevent Saunders College from setting a higher price (BiP cites "$26.75," probably near the price we'd see under normal circumstances). Saunders College Publishing has opted to place a large sticker on the front cover, "$20.00 net/price does not include bookstore markup," choosing to take the heat from stores rather than taking the loss (or tipping in a new title page). Anyone into Fortran textbooks can pick up a bargain 'til the next printing.
