Synopses & Reviews
One of the first programming books dedicated to Fortran 90packed with engineering examples and applications! Fortran 90 and Engineering Computation William Schick, Emeritus, Fairleigh Dickinson University Gordon Silverman, Manhattan College 58512-2 Fortran is still one of todays most widely usedand widely taught programming languages. But most books on the subject are based on the old Fortran 77. Now this authoritative new book teaches the principles of programming exclusively in the new version of FortranFortran 90! While other books merely annotate a discussion of Fortran 77, this one puts Fortran 90 at center stage. The authors draw on their two years of experience with a Fortran 90 compiler to present a complete and accurate introduction to using this challenging new standard. Plus, the approximately 150 example problemsmore examples than any other similar bookmake heavy use of engineering situations. The reader will find specific examples drawn from Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and more. Other features include:
- Numerous fully tested and debugged Fortran 90 programs
- A step-by-step discussion of how to go about creating and compiling a program
- A separate chapter on debugging techniques
- A thorough discussion of a complete program edit/compil cycle
- Copious explanations of concept and terms to make the material easy to understand
This book is also available through the Introductory Engineering Custom Publishing System. If you are interested in creating a course-pack that includes chapters from this book, you can get further information by calling 212-850-6272 or sending email inquiries to engineer&atsign;jwiley.com.
