Computing and Science
“Computational modeling and simulation are among the most significant developments in the practice of scientific inquiry in the 20th Century. Within the last two decades, scientific computing has become an important contributor to all scientific disciplines.
It is particularly important for the solution of research problems that are insoluble by traditional scientific theoretical and experimental approaches, hazardous to study in the laboratory, or time consuming or expensive to solve by traditional means” — “Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing”
