Abstract:

FORTRAN was designed to run efficiently on primitive serial computers it had to compete at birth head to head with machine assembly code and its widespread use influenced the development of the most advanced machines used for numerical calculations in the 60s, 70s and 80s c.f. CDC 64000, 6600, 7600 CRAY etc.. However, soon the performance limits achievable by a single serial processor economically became a limit to the monotonic growth of computer performance and alternative approaches most typically dedicated multiprocessor configurations have been offered as ways to Surmount these constraints.
