This course covers the modern features of the Fortran programming language. Topics include object-oriented features, language interoperability and several other enhancements available at the Fortran 2008 standard. In addition, a way to express distributed memory parallelism via Fortran coarrays will be discussed in detail.
The course provides an overview on all the relevant features of Fortran beyond the 95 standard. You also will be able to write parallel programs using the Fortran coarrays concept.
Solid knowledge of Fortran 95/2003. The concepts discussed in the PATC introduction course Fortran Programming for Scientific Computing is the minimum. Knowledge of C will also be needed for understanding topics on language interoperability. Some familiarity with object-oriented programming concepts will be assumed. Some knowledge of parallel programming with message-passing interface (MPI) will be assumed when discussing the coarrays concept.
