Very often, the ability to generate quantitative information on specific systems is central to the analysis and design in the investigation of science and engineeringsystems. Applied analysts and designers of complex systems rely heavily on numerical solutions to the mathematical models representing a given physical system under study. This leads to the task of computation, which must be accurate and efficient.
