Introduction to Fortran (wikipedia)
Fortran (Formula Translation) is a general-purpose, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Fortran was originally developed by IBM in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications and it dominates this area of programming early on and has been in continuous use for over half a century in computationally intensive areas such as numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics, crystallography and computational chemistry. It is a popular language for high-performance computing and is used for programs that benchmark and rank the world's fastest supercomputers.
This class will provide an introduction to the Fortran (mainly Fortran 90) programming language.
