CS 111: Introduction to Scientific Computing What is Scientific Computing? One of the earliest, and still one of the largest, uses of computer was to solve problem in science and engineering, and more specifically, to obtain solution of mathematical models that represent some physical situations. The techniques used to find such solutions are part of the general area called scientific computing , and the use of these techniques to find insight into scientific or engineering problems is called computational science . “Find algorithms for computer simulations of scientific or engineering problems”
