Forcheck technology will be integrated into Synopsys' Coverity static analysis solution to provide support for software written in the Fortran programming language, which is a popular choice for numerically intensive scientific and engineering applications in industries such as oil and gas, military, defense and aerospace.
For most of the book he writes code in the Fortran programming language using the GNU Emacs text editor and command line compiling from the Cygwin "shell" for Windows, which uses the GNU Fortran compiler "gfortran." He covers getting comfortable, interpolation and data fitting, searching for roots, numerical quadrature, ordinary differential equations, Fourier analysis, Monte Carlo method, partial differential equations, advanced numerical quadrature, advanced ordinary differential equation solver and applications, and high performance computing.
