Fortran is a general purpose imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Fortran was originally developed by IBM. It was in the 1950s that fortran first came about and was first developed for scientific and engineering applications.

Fortran dominated its area even in the early days and has continued to do so even after more than fifty years of being around. Intensive areas within fortran include numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics, and crystallography.
