Book Description – Introduction to Programming with Fortran
Introduction to Programming with Fortran – This third edition has been revised throughout in response to feedback from course representatives. It expands with new and updated examples in chapters on arithmetic, I/O, character data, modules, data structures, and general programming with minor updates to the remaining chapters in the second edition.
- Lots of explicit, exposing core language features of modern Fortran, including data typing, array processing, control structures, functions, subroutines, modules, user-defined types, pointers, operator overloading, generic programming, object-oriented programming, and parallelization simple example programming
- Indicates common problems that occur while programming
- Demonstrates the use of multiple compilers
- Compilers have improved standards conformance, with new examples illustrating the following major ones.
Introduction to Programming with Fortran is written for complete beginners with little or no programming background, as well as existing Fortran programmers and those with programming experience in other languages. The book has 36 chapters and five appendices. There is a lot of focus on each chapter. The presentation is completely clear and concise. This book can be an excellent choice for an instructor-led course in introductory programming, not just for scientists and engineers. It can be used by anyone, with or without prior programming experience, to learn Fortran through self-study.
