Michael Metcalf worked for many years at CERN, Geneva. He is the author of a range of publications, including Fortran 90/95 Explained (with John Reid) and Effective FORTRAN 77 (Oxford University Press), and FORTRAN Optimization (Academic Press). He is the editor of ACM Fortran Forum. John Reid is well known as a numerical analyst and is a co-author of Direct Methods for Sparse Matrices (OUP). He is the Convener of the ISO Fortran Committee and has played a leading role in the development of many of the features of Fortran 95 and 2003. Malcolm Cohen is a mathematician and the leading compiler writer at NAG in Oxford. He has participated actively in the development of Fortran standards and was a major deisgner of Fortran 2003's object-oriented features.

Reviews for Fortran 95/2003 Explained

Review from previous edition This book is excellent. The prose is clear and concise, explaining all the elements of Fortran 90 and the extensions making up Fortan 95...If you need to write Fortran 90/95 code, keep this book by your computer. Computer Bulletin 'It is a complete and authoritative description of Fortran 90/95 and is intended for new and existing users, and all for those involved in scientific and numerical computing' Zentralblatt Math Both authors are eminent scientists in the field of scientific computing and their experience shines through every page and every example.
