Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 publised 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 the leading experts in the development of the language, this is the only complete and authoritative description of the two languages (Fortran 95 and Fortran 2003). Containing numerous examples, exercises and solutions, and an extensive index, it is highly suitable as both a student textbook and practitioner reference.

Book News Annotation:

After a brief history, coverage proceeds to language elements, expressions and assignments, control constructs, program units and procedures, array features, specification statements, intrinsic procedures, and data transfer. The three authors continue with operations on external files, floating-point exception handling, allocatable array extensions, enhanced module facilities, interoperability with C, type parameters and procedure pointers, object-oriented programming, and establishing and moving data. They also explain the variety of input/output and miscellaneous enhancements and other features of these new versions. Appendices include obsolescent features and Fortran terms. Chapters feature extensive examples and exercises with an answer key.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

Michael Metcalf worked for many years at CERN, Geneva. He is the author of a range of publications, including Fortran 90/95 Explained (with John Reid) and Effective FORTRAN 77 (Oxford University Press), and FORTRAN Optimization (Academic Press). He is the editor of ACM Fortran Forum. John Reid is well known as a numerical analyst and is a co-author of Direct Methods for Sparse Matrices (OUP). He is the Convener of the ISO Fortran Committee and has played a leading role in the development of many of the features of Fortran 95 and 2003.

Malcolm Cohen is a mathematician and the leading compiler writer at NAG in Oxford. He has participated actively in the development of Fortran standards and was a major deisgner of Fortran 2003's object-oriented features.
