Fortran for the ATLAS 2 and TITAN computers

Fortran (previously FORTRAN) is a general-purpose, procedural, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Originally developed by IBM at their campus in south San Jose, California in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications, Fortran came to dominate this area of programming early on and has been in continual use for over half a century in computationally intensive areas such as numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics and computational chemistry. It is one of the most popular languages in
the area of high-performance computing and is the language used for programs that benchmark and rank the world's fastest supercomputers.

his manual describes the Cambridge ATLAS 2 and TITAN implementation of Fortran at Computer Systems at Cambridge U.K. These comprehensive notes cover the period from 1969 to 1970
