Abstract : FORTRAN M is a modified FORTRAN language designed to aid in the numerical manipulation of band matrices and vectors. In FORTRAN M, band matrices and vectors may be handled in a manner similar to ordinary matrix algebra. Two FORTRAN M packages and their use are described; one for use with an IBM 7094 II computer and one for an IBM 1620. Each package consists of a programming language, a translator program and a set of subroutines. Appendices contain an illustrative example and source lists of the translators and subroutines.
