Mathematics in Scientific Computing
Scientific computing is a relatively new research area, which arose because of the advances in computer resources. It addresses the critical issue of the development, analysis, and application of algorithms for solving problems in engineering and applied sciences. Mathematics plays a central role in the development of scientific computing, and is responsible for the success of computer simulation together with the increase of computer powers. In this talk I will give an introduction to scientific computing and use several examples to demonstrate the role mathematics is playing in its development.
