W. Kahan & Joseph Darcy point out a number of reasons why Java produces
incorrect results in intensive mathematical calculations;
Java mathematics is quite satisfactory for most applications, and
is easier to grasp than a number of other languages, thus it is fine
for ordinary applications.
But in applications where precise and correct results to complex
computations are required, Java is unsatisfactory. Unfortunately, it is
exactly those applications which are likely to be written in Fortran.
Perhaps you should consider converting Fortran to some other language for
