Middleware for Scientific Computing on GPUs From Fortran 95

Scientific computing and numerical analysis techniques have been widely adapted and implemented in the Fortran language since its inception. Many successive versions of Fortran have allowed new functionalities to be incorporated into the language while maintaining backward compatibility with older code. The current standard, Fortran 2003, is extensively used in high-performance computing on supercomputers and computer clusters. While Fortran users may have access to these nodes, fast processing times are still possible on a single desktop system. The Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) on modern graphic cards can perform a large amount of instructions in parallel execution.
