FORTRAN[1] is a general-purpose[2], procedural[3], imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Originally developed by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications, FORTRAN came to dominate this area of programming early on and has been in continuous use in specialized applications such as climate modeling (more) and molecular dynamics modeling (more) for half a century.
