This text is an outstanding introduction to FORTRAN programming. Its emphasis on problem-solving techniques, structured programming concepts, and program documentation and testing improves program definition, reduces programming errors, and simplifies program debugging. The authors take advantage of fully developed case studies throughout the text to illuminate key concepts in a real programming environment. This unique book includes over 125 complete, tested, and fully documented programs (with their executions) exposing readers to exemplary FORTRAN Code. Section Previews provide a top-down approach to the concepts presented in each section; Self-Test questions appear at the end of each chapter (with answers provided in a separate section of the book); programming Style Notes, Caution Notes, and Warnings are set off in blue and appear frequently throughout the text. Numerous separate sections on Testing and Debugging and fully expanded Programming Exercises are also included. This book should be of interest to students on introductory courses in FORTRAN.
