You can download the each chapter of this free book **“Numerical Recipes in FORTRAN 77: The Art of Scientific Computing”** in pdf format. This book, like its predecessor edition, is supposed to teach you methods of numerical computing that are practical, efficient, and (insofar as possible) elegant.

**Description**

We presume throughout this book that you, the reader, have particular tasks that you want to get done. We view our job as educating you on how to proceed. Occasionally we may try to reroute you briefly onto a particularly beautiful side road; but by and large, we will guide you along main highways that lead to practical destinations.
