Procedures

A summary of the subroutines and functions in this collection that are based on the originals in the book Computer Methods for Mathematical Computations by Forsythe, Malcolm and Moler.

The original procedure names and lists of dummy arguments have been modified to be more in line with modern Fortran style. Click on a procedure name to see a list of the dummy arguments.
