## having problem to understand kind notation in fortran 90

hi all,

i have codes for 1d fdtd maxwell equation. the problem i am facing right now is some error regarding the kind notation.

Code:
!1d fdtd Simulation in free space
subroutine fd1d01(f0,miu,delta,S,E0)
implicit none

real        :: f0
real        :: miu
real        :: delta
real        :: S
real        :: E0
integer     :: iinit
integer     :: ilast
real        :: Ca
real        :: Da
integer (kind = 2)  :: i
integer (kind = 5)  :: n
real        :: tdelta
real        :: c
real,dimension(:,:),allocatable   :: Ez
real,dimension(:,:),allocatable   :: Hy
real, parameter :: pi = 3.14159265
real        :: Cb
real        :: Db
real        :: lambda
real        :: alpha
character(len=20)  ::filename

allocate (Ez(-1:103,-1:503))
allocate (Hy(-1:103,-1:503))

f0 = 1.0
miu = 1.0
delta = 1.0
S = 1.0
E0 = 1.0
iinit = 0
ilast = 100

c = 3.e8
lambda = c/f0
print *,'lambda=',lambda
alpha = 0.04*lambda
print *,'alpha=',alpha
tdelta = 1.0*alpha/(S*c)
print*, 'tdelta=',tdelta

!initialization
do i = iinit,ilast
Ez(iinit+1/2,0) = 0
Hy(iinit+1,0) = 0
end do

Ca = 1.0
Cb = tdelta/(delta*alpha)
Da = 1.0
Db = tdelta/(miu*alpha)

!write (filename, "('ez',I3.3,'.dat')") n
!open (unit=130,file=filename)
do n = 1,500
write (filename, "('ez',I3.3,'.dat')") n
open (unit=130,file=filename)
do i = iinit+1,ilast
Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5)) = Ca*(Ez(real(i-0.5,n-0.5))) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1,n))
Hy(i,n+1) = Da*(Hy(i,n)) + Db*(Ez(real(i+0.5,n+0.5))-Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5)))

Write (130,*) i-0.5, Ez(real (i-0.5,n+0.5))
end do !i

!plane wave source

Ez(1./2+(ilast-iinit)/2,n) = E0*sin (2*pi*f0*n*tdelta)

close (unit=130)

end do !n

end SUBROUTINE fd1d01
the error as below:

Code:
subroutines.f90:15.17:

integer (kind = 5)  :: n
1
Error: Kind 5 not supported for type INTEGER at (1)
subroutines.f90:62.4:

do n = 1,500
1
Error: Symbol 'n' at (1) has no IMPLICIT type
subroutines.f90:76.5:

1
Warning: Extension: REAL array index at (1)
make: *** [subroutines.o] Error 1
can anyone advice me how to solve this problem.

thank you

 Mentor It seems to me that on the computer you are compiling this code, kind = 5 is not supported for integer types. You are asking the compiler to allocate half the normal size for an integer, but the compiler can't do this. I would either take the kind part out of this line of code Code: integer (kind = 5) :: n or change to kind = 2. Here's a link to some info as pertains to the GNU fortran compiler - http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3....-Notation.html
 hi mark44, i did change KIND= 2, but some error came out as below: Code: subroutines.f90:68.17: Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5)) = Ca*(Ez(real(i-0.5,n-0.5))) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1,n)) 1 Error: 'kind' argument of 'real' intrinsic at (1) must be INTEGER subroutines.f90:68.45: Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5)) = Ca*(Ez(real(i-0.5,n-0.5))) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1,n)) 1 Error: 'kind' argument of 'real' intrinsic at (1) must be INTEGER subroutines.f90:69.70: Hy(i,n+1) = Da*(Hy(i,n)) + Db*(Ez(real(i+0.5,n+0.5))-Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5))) 1 Error: 'kind' argument of 'real' intrinsic at (1) must be INTEGER subroutines.f90:71.38: Write (130,*) i-0.5, Ez(real (i-0.5,n+0.5)) 1 Error: 'kind' argument of 'real' intrinsic at (1) must be INTEGER subroutines.f90:76.5: Ez(1./2+(ilast-iinit)/2,n) = E0*sin (2*pi*f0*n*tdelta) 1 Warning: Extension: REAL array index at (1) what is that mean? thank you

Most or all of your errors seem to be that your array indexes for the Ez array are real, not integer.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do in this line:
Code:
Ez(real(i-0.5,n+0.5))= Ca*(Ez(real(i-0.5,n-0.5))) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1,n))
The real intrinsic function converts a single integer to a single-precision floating point number. It takes one argument, not two as you are doing.

Your Ez array is two-dimensional - each index needs to be an integer value, not a floating point value. Why do you have indexes that are obviously fractional?

Notice that all five errors point out problems in how you are indexing your Ez array.
 Recognitions: Science Advisor IMO, "kind" is a good idea with a very dumb implementation. The good idea is that you can describe what range of values (for integers) or precision (for reals) your program needs, and the compiler can then select the best way to implement this depending on the hardware (32 or 64 bit systems, etc). The very dumb implementation is that there is NO standardization of what the different integers that denote "kinds" represent, and sometimes no obvious logic either. For example GNU fortran uses KIND=2 to mean "integers of twice the normal length" (that seem logical enough), but KIND=5 means "half the normal length", and "KIND = 7" means "integers large enough to hold a pointer". Yeah, right, it's obvious to everybody that's what 5 and 7 mean Even worse, GNU says it might change the definitions the definitions in future, so even old "GNU-compatible" code will break. http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3....-Notation.html And other compilers might use KIND=2 to mean "2-byte integers", which are "half the normal length" compared with GNU's interpretation of "twice the normal length".

This is what I said a couple of posts back (emphasis added). Did you read it?

 mark 44, i read your reply, and i make change...but somehow it came out with lib64 error and so on. maybe i misunderstood, ( my english is freaking bad, and fortran for me is just a few months experience)....i've change this part allocate (Ez(-0.5:103,-0.5:503)) allocate (Hy(-0.5:103,-0.5:503)) into allocate (Ez(-2:100,0:501)) allocate (Hy(-2:100,0:501)) or allocate (Ez(0:100,0:500)) allocate (Hy(0:100,0:500)) and then this error came out: *** glibc detected *** ./main: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00007fdb92dbf010 *** and so on. or is it the warning came out because of this algorithm Ez(i-1./2,n+1./2) = Ca*(Ez(i-1./2,n-1./2)) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1.,n)) i just translate the finite difference expression for maxwell equations from taflove's book into fortran language. please highlight me...which part i should change. and very big thank you for your time

I don't have much recent experience with fortran, but I suspect that this error is cause by not deallocating the memory that you allocated. Also, I don't believe that your allocate statements are right. They should just indicate how many cells in each dimension to allocate.

I might be wrong, but I think the above statements should be something like this:
Code:
allocate(Ez(101, 501), STAT =  status)
and similar for your Hy array.

 Quote by s_hy and so on. or is it the warning came out because of this algorithm Ez(i-1./2,n+1./2) = Ca*(Ez(i-1./2,n-1./2)) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1.,n))
This is what I've been saying. You can't do this!!!!
Ez(i-1./2,n+1./2) = Ca*(Ez(i-1./2,n-1./2)) + Cb*(Hy(i,n)-Hy(i-1.,n))

The indexes in an array have to be integer numbers. You can't access the element whose index is 3.5, for example.

You have to change your code so that you store values at integer indexes in the arrays.
