FIRE_SERIAL is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
PRIME_SERIAL, a Python program which counts the number of primes between 1 and N, intended as a starting point for the creation of a parallel version.
QUAD_SERIAL, a Python program which approximates an integral using a quadrature rule, and is intended as a starting point for parallelization exercises.
SEARCH_SERIAL, a Python program which searches integers between A and B for a value J such that F(J) = C, intended as a starting point for the creation of a parallel version.
