1. INTRODUCTION
Development of programming languages, origin of FORTRAN and its significance for solving of numerical problems. A brief comparison of FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90, Pascal and the C language. Rules for coding. Types of variables. Storage of variables of different types in memory. Arithmetical expressions. Standard functions. The assignment statement. The compilation and linking of programs on PC and some workstations.

2. BRANCHING
Unconditional jump statement. Logical operations. Arithmetical, logical and block IF constructs.

3. LOOPS
Single and nested do-loops, exit from a do-loop. Summation of infinite series and continued fractions.

4. ARRAYS
Declaration of arrays, storage of vectors and matrices in memory. Scalar and vector products, matrix multiplication. The game of LIFE.

5. INPUT AND OUTPUT
Input and output units, FORMAT statement. Output of vectors and matrices.

6. FUNCTION SUBPROGRAM
Local and global variables. Transfer of parameters, side effect of a function. EXTERNAL statement. Statement functions.

7. SUBROUTINE SUBPROGRAM
Comparison with FUNCTION subprogram. Additional entry points, alternate return. Transfer of arrays into subprograms.

8. SHARED VARIABLES
Labeled and blank COMMON blocks, declarations. A use of the EQUIVALENCE statement for data conversions. SAVE statement.

9. CHARACTER VARIABLES
Declaration, concatenation operator, standard functions LEN and INDEX. Character substrings.

10. DISK I/O
Classification of disk files ? formatted/unformatted/binary, with sequential or direct access. File opening and closing, read and write operations. Tests for file existence, determination of the end_of_file during the read operation.

11. DEBUGGING
The rules for correct programs writing, debugging principles and operations.

12. FORTRAN 90
Some new features of the language: array operations, pointers, new standard functions, modules, user-defined data types, dynamic variables.

13. PROGRAM LIBRARIES
How to use the subprograms from the Numerical recipes, LAPACK, EISPACK.
