Fortran is the language of choice for scientists and engineers. In addition to its common use as a powerful language for scientific and medical research, it lends itself well to industrial applications in fields such as weather forecasting, aeronautics, aerospace, and the military. Fortran's rich set of mathematical computation features, array manipulation, and optimizable constructs help you quickly create complex yet efficient modelling algorithms. You can use IBM's modern standards-compliant XL Fortran compiler to unlock the full potential of IBM Power and Blue Gene systems running AIX and Linux.
