› Find signed collectible books: 'Fortran 8x Explained'
The undoubted success of Fortran as the predominant programming language in the field of scientific and numerical computing is due in part to the steady evolution of the language. Following the publication of the first two standards in 1966 and 1978, the technical committee responsible for their development, X3J3, began work on a new standard suitable for use in the 1990s. A first draft of the standard was subject to periods of public comment both in the USA and internationally. As a result, a new draft of the standard has been prepared. This book is a description of this new language, for the moment called Fortran 8x. It is intended to provide potential users of the language with a comprehensive guide to all its features, so that they can prepare for its introduction. The authors are both members of X3J3 and have many years of experience in the use of Fortran. The book is intended for existing Fortran users and for all those involved in any aspect of scientific and numerical computing.

The success of Fortran as the predominant programming language in the field of scientific and numerical computing is due, in part, to the steady evolution of the language. Following the publication of the first two standards of 1966 and 1978, the technical committee responsible for their development, X3J3, has worked in conjunction with an ISO committee to develop a new standard suitable for use in the 1990s. This new standard, Fortran 90, contains the new features required for large scale computing on modern supercomputers, but still retains all the familiar features that have made the language so popular. This book is a complete and thorough description of the new language, providing a comprehensive guide to all its features. Its authors are both members of X3J3 and have many years of experience in the use of Fortran. The book is intended for new and existing Fortran users, and for all those involved in any aspect of scientific and numerical computing.

The success of Fortran as the predominant programming language in the field of scientific and numerical computing is due, in part, to its steady evolution. Following the publication of standards in 1966 and 1978, the committee responsible for their development, X3J3, worked in conjunction with an ISO committee to develop a standard suitable for use in the 1990's and beyond. This standard, ISO Fortran 90, contained new features for large-scale computing nd data abstraction, but still retained all the old familiar features. Fortran 90/95 Explained is a thorough examination of Fortran in 1995. It represents a complete revision of the original 1990 text Fortran 90 Explained, in particular a more detailed explanation of many features, more examples, and new appendices. One completely new chapter discusses Fortran 95, a revision of the ISO Fortran 90 standard based on the interpretations that have been requested following its implementation and use. In addition, new features to keep ISO Fortran aligned with High Performance Fortran have been added, along with a number of minor improvements. All of these are fully described for programmers wanting to update their skills.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Fortran 95/2003 Explained (Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation)'
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.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Fortran Optimization (A.P.I.C. studies in data processing)'
FORTRAN has always been intended to be an efficient high-level language, and its adherence to this original design aim has helped it to achieve a dominant position in scientific, engineering and other areas of computing. However, advice on how to obtain the best possible performance has, until now, been scattered through the literature, in brief articles, detailed reports on specific computers, and very general and often superficial chapters in books on FORTRAN programming.**This book, for the first time, deals with the whole topic in a systematic fashion, and every effort has been taken to include only the most up-to-date information, and to present it in a way which clearly distinguishes between the different techniques required for the various types of compiler.**The book begins with an extensive introduction to the subject, including a justification for optimizing, explanations of the hardware of modern computers, and the optimizing techniques used by FORTRAN 77 compilers. The preparatory work required before optimizing begins is covered, followed by a detailed discussion of the procedures which may be applied to source code to achieve the highest efficiency of execution, according to the type of compiler used. IBM and CDC compilers are covered in detail. Program portability is discussed and the use of super-computers introduced. The plans for future FORTRAN are presented. A widely used layout-program appears in an appendix.**FROM THE PREFACE: Throughout its more than two decades of history, one of FORTRAN's main strengths as a programming language has been its adherence to its original design aim of providing efficient program execution. However, advice on how to obtain the best possible performance has hitherto been scattered, being contained either in reports on specific computers and compilers (e.g. Smith et al., 1977), or in parts of various books of rather too general a nature. This book brings together for the first time a detailed survey of the means by which FORTRAN source code may be optimized, and includes other background information which should enable the reader to understand better how a FORTRAN program is processed by a compiler, and subsequently executed. As such, it is intended to help all those who write or run FORTRAN programs to make efficient use of computer resources without making unjustifiably great demands on their own time.**This book should be useful as a reference work for anyone engaged in FORTRAN programming on any scale greater than simple, single-shot, short jobs, and as a supplementary text in any course on FORTRAN programming beyond the preliminary stages.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Modern Fortran Explained (Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation)'
Fortran remains one of the principal programming languages used in high-performance scientific, numerical, and engineering computing. A series of significant revisions to the standard versions of the language have progressively enhanced its capabilities and the latest standard, Fortran 2008, includes many modern features, such as object orientation, coarrays for parallel programming, interoperability with C and various other enhancements.
Modern Fortran Explained expands on its predecessor, Fortran 95/2003 Explained. The opening chapters contain a complete description of Fortran 95, extended by Fortran 2003 allocatable array features. Coverage of the other additional features of Fortran 2003 follows, before new chapters on coarrays and the many other enhancements of Fortran 2008. The distinction between the three language levels is maintained throughout, allowing readers to understand and amend legacy code as well as the new features.
Authored by three experts in the field, two of whom have actively contributed to Fortran 2008, this is a complete and authoritative description of Fortran in its modern form. It is intended for new and existing users of the language and for all those involved in scientific and numerical computing. It is suitable as a textbook for teaching and, with its extensive Appendices and an Index, as a handy reference for practitioners.
