Numerical Computing with Modern Fortran.
Numerical Computing with Modern Fortran
Richard J. Hanson and Tim Hopkins
Convinced by their personal experience that Fortran is currently the best computer language for numerical software, Hanson and Hopkins share their approaches and prejudices towards writing computer software for numerical computing and applications. They present examples along with exercises for readers to work through to demonstrate not only how individual elements of the Fortran language work, but how they work together in particular algorithms. Among the topics are modules for subprogram libraries, toward a modern QUADPACK routine, interoperability with C, modifying source to remove obsolescent or deleted features, and software tools.
