**Computational Modeling and Mathematics Applied to the Physical Sciences**

**Publisher**: National Academy Press 1984**ISBN/ASIN**: B000UV1QMU**Number of pages**: 108

**Description**:

As illustration, we examine several deep theoretical problems, including turbulence and combustion. At the frontiers of attack on these problems we discover the limitations imposed by our current understanding of model formulation and computational capability. We examine modeling problems and algorithms adapted both to specific features of the desired solution and to the computer architecture. We also examine computer architecture and component design and manufacture as a mathematical modeling problem.
