`Arrays are collections of same-type elements; individual
elements are accessed by subscripting the array.
`

`Consider A be a vector of 6 elements,
`

`Suppose each element ,
is exactly represantable in floating point
(i.e. , are REAL numbers).
Instead of working with 6+6=12 different
REAL variables, we can treat
A and B in their entirety
as F90 variables;
the following are valid F90 declarations:
`

real, dimension(6) :: a real, dimension(2,3) :: b real :: a(6), b(2,3) ! shorthand form
