last paragraph

In last sentence in the below paragraph, it is incorrectly mentioned as mainframe. It should be 'supercomputer' instead of 'mainframe'. Supercomputer is a fairly broad term used to describe only the fastest computers. A supercomputer may act as a mainframe and support many simultaneous users, but its focus is on running one program or a few huge programs extremely quickly, rather than on performing many smaller tasks for many users. Typical mainframe applications include massive simulations for weather prediction, fluid dynamics calculations, and nuclear energy research.

Note from the Author or Editor:
You're right, that should say "supercomputer" not "mainframe." Thanks for pointing this out.

Last paragraph

The last paragraph talks about routines as the next chapter. but it is about operators. Thank you for all of your efforts to create and publish this book.

Note from the Author or Editor:
That paragraph should segue into the next one, which as mentioned deals with operators.
