About the book
Scientific enquiry mostly require computation of mathematical models. Numeric Computing in Fortran endeavors to systematically develop the principal methods of solution of such problems, develop the algorithms in an organized manner and provides understandable computer codes in simple statements of Fortran 90/95 – a traditional language for such purposes. This forward looking version of the language is fully backward-compatible to facilitate integration with user written programs. The mathematics behind the computational methods is kept at a moderate level and proofs of the theoretical results are provided in most cases.
The book will be useful for traditional courses of Numerical Methods/ Analysis in Engineering, Natural Sciences and Mathematics. It will be a useful text for researchers in these subjects and for those who prefer to write their own programs.
