Abstract

When a science problem is solved with the aid of numerical computations, the solution procedure involves several steps:
  1. 1.

    Understanding the problem and formulating a mathematical model

     
  2. 2.

    Using numerical methods to solve the mathematical problems

     
  3. 3.

    Implementing the numerical methods in a computer program

     
  4. 4.

    Verifying that the results from the program are mathematically correct

     
  5. 5.

    Applying the program to the scientific problem and interpreting the results
