High Performance Fortran (HPF) users who want to learn more about the language can now access a collection of related materials online. This collection, HPFE (HPF Education) is a part of a larger collection of material called HPFA (HPF Applications), which is accessable under http://old-npac.ucs.indiana.edu/hpfa/. The HPFE web page was created by CRPC researchers at Syracuse University, including Nancy McCracken, Ken Hawick, Tom Haupt, and Geoffrey Fox (Paul Coddington, Guy Robinson, and Hon W. Yau are additional participants in the HPFA project).

High Performance Fortran, a product of the CRPC-led High Performance Fortran Forum, is an informal industry standard for data-parallel Fortran that provides the array programming capabilities and other features of Fortran 90.

The HPFE collection and the related HPFA web pages are comprehensive starting points for almost all aspects of HPF. Users can read lecture notes and textbook chapters with programming examples for HPF and Fortran 90. One set of lecture notes from a three-hour talk by CRPC researcher Chuck Koelbel includes the history of HPF and a description of several of its key features.

Users can also view materials on HPF applications derived from the "Introduction to Computational Science" course for graduate students at Syracuse University. The web page also contains pointers to other HPF and parallel computing web sites, including CRPC researcher Ian Foster's online book "Designing and Building Parallel Programs" (see here for a related article).
