Abstract

The papers listed in this chronological bibliography have been selected on the basis of their relationship to the language FORTRAN, its implementations, its derivatives, and its definition. Only in exceptional cases have references been included to the use of FORTRAN in specialized applications. Papers have been included where the application is in the development of a secondary language, however, or where the modification of FORTRAN is capable of supporting some application other than ";scientific programming."; For historical completeness, a few references have been included to pre- FORTRAN systems that were referenced in some of the early FORTRAN publications. We have kept punctuation to a minimum in the titles in the bibliography; for instance, we haven't used italics or quotation marks for book or article titles. We give the form of the name of the language used by the author (FORTRAN or Fortran) in the title, but we give our usual form of small capitals (FORTRAN) in the annotations. A dagger (t) preceding an author's name indicates that the author is not listed on the document itself, but the best recollections of the participant(s) point to that author.

Introduction

The papers listed in this chronological bibliography have been selected on the basis of their relationship to the language FORTRAN, its implementations, its derivatives, and its definition. Only in exceptional cases have references been included to the use of FORTRAN in specialized applications. Papers have been included where the application is in the development of a secondary language, however, or where the modification of FORTRAN is capable of supporting some application other than "scientific programming." For historical completeness, a few references have been included to pre- FORTRAN systems that were referenced in some of the early FORTRAN publications.

We have kept punctuation to a minimum in the titles in the bibliography; for instance, we haven't used italics or quotation marks for book or article titles. We give the form of the name of the language used by the author (FORTRAN or Fortran) in the title, but we give our usual form of small capitals (FORTRAN) in the annotations. A dagger (t) preceding an author's name indicates that the author is not listed on the document itself, but the best recollections of the participant(s) point to that author.
