The application of computation to problems in fluid dynamic stability and transition has resulted in a great deal of physical understanding of the underlying processes over the last 15 or so years. The capability to precisely adjust and monitor quantities which may be difficult or impossible to control or measure in an experiment has allowed us to explain a number of hitherto puzzling experimental observations. It now appears obvious and generally accepted that computation will play a key role in transition research in the future.
