Abstract

The universe of computer simulations is vast, flourishing in almost every scientific discipline, and still resisting a general conceptualization. From the early computations of the Moon’s orbit carried out by punched card machines, to the most recent attempts to simulate quantum states, computer simulations have a uniquely short but very rich history.
