About the Authors
  • Numerical Recipes in Fortran 90 starts with a detailed introduction to the Fortran 90 language and then presents the basic concepts of parallel programming. All 350+ routines from the second edition of Numerical Recipes are presented in Fortran 90. Many are completely reworked algorithmically so as to be 'parallel-ready' and to utilise Fortran 90's advanced language features. Numerical Recipes in Fortran 90 emphasises general principles, but throughout there are also numerous hints and tips. This volume is intended for use with the original Numerical Recipes in Fortran, 2nd Edition (now called Numerical Recipes in Fortran 77) and does not discuss how the individual programs are used, or how the mathematical methods are used. An excellent guide for Fortran programmers interested in moving to Fortran 90, or C/C++ programmers interested in parallel programming.

    • New text with detailed F 90 tutorial and introduction to parallel programming
    • All routines from the second edition of Numerical Recipes are presented in Fortran 90, many reworked to be 'parallel-ready'

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This new edition begins with three completely new chapters that provide a detailed introduction to the Fortran 90 language and then present the basic concepts of parallel programming, all with the same clarity and good cheer for which Numerical Recipes is famous.' L'Enseignement Mathématique

    ' … certainly recommendable'. Eric de Sturler, ITW Nieuws
