Addison-Wesley is pleased to offer this specially-priced update of Elliot Koffman and Frank Friedman's Fortran text. Assuming no prior knowledge of computers or programming, the authors teach effective problem-solving and program-design techniques. The text emphasizes a software engineering approach to program design and carefully applies a five-step problem-solving approach: problem specification, analysis, design, implementation, and testing/verification. Koffman and Friedman provide thorough coverage of Fortran 77, with special sections on Fortran 90, and the techniques learned serve as a solid foundation for future programming regardless of the language used.

New Features
  • "On to C" Chapter. This chapter provides a gentle introduction to C programming. Students learn C based on how they learned to program in Fortran. This new chapter replaces Chapters 11 and 12 in previous editions.
  • Updated Chapter 1. The Introduction to Computing chapter has been updated to reflect recent developments in industry.
