MODERN FORTRAN 77/90/95/2000
by Gary Bronson
(Fairleigh Dickinson University)
& Ken Walter
(Weber State University)

We're happy to announce the 3rd edition of Gary Bronson's Modern Fortran 77/90/95/2000, with the co-author ship of Ken Walter.

What's New?
  • Additional Exercises for Science and Engineering—Appendix H require a deeper understanding of Fortran and necessitate an integration of input, processing, and output concepts for their completion. They require students to prepare a documented and formatted report in a professional manner. Both sample data and report structures are provided.
  • ANSI Fortran 90/95/2000 Features—Fortran 90 features are integrated and highlighted throughout the entire book. In addition, Appendix I refers to most sections of the text and discusses in detail how to apply Fortran 90 concepts to each of those sections. The particular compiler referenced in Appendix I is Essential Lahey Fortran (ELF) 90.
  • Translating Legacy Fortran—Modern Fortran, C, and C++ (Appendix J) is organized by concept relating to the major chapters in the book. Very short programs are presented in Appendix J comparing implementation of these concepts in FOR- TRAN IV, WATFOR/WATFIV, FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90/95/2000, 2 and C/C++.
What's Remained the Same?
  • Readability—The hallmark of effective, clear textbook writing by Gary Bronson is retained.
  • Structure and Modularity—This book stresses structured, modular application development from beginning to end.
  • WRITE and FORMAT Statements—The list-directed WRITE statement is introduced in Chapter 1 and is used in preference to the PRINT statement throughout the text. This provides for an early introduction to output unit numbers, which is easily transferable to file writing and is not possible with the PRINT statement. Formatted output is also introduced early, in Chapter 2, which provides students with the ability to both think about and create professional looking output.
  • Early (Optional) Introduction to Files—Text (formatted) files are introduced in the second-half of Chapter 5, immediately after the DO statement. The file material in the latter half of Chapter 5, however, may be delayed until later in the course and introduced wherever the instructor sees it as appropriate.
