What is CSE?
(CSE) is the use of computers to simulate physical phenomena, or to optimize how physical systems are structured, or to discover new information hidden within them.
Most problems that are interesting to scientists and engineers are problems that are very very big, even though some of them are very very small.
For example, studying the relationships between the atoms in a few tens of thousands of molecules, or the movement of tornados across a state, or the formation of galaxies, can require TB of RAM, tens of TB of storage and weeks of CPU time.
