Ever wonder how the information from weather stations is used to predict the weather? Or how medical doctors estimate the growth of tumors within the human brain? These and many other challenging questions encountered daily by researchers in academia, industry, and the government.
How can we solve these problems faster, with less equipment, and the same usability? Computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, biologists and scientists from many other fields are working collaboratively everyday to answer these questions. In some cases we are aiming to extend our current methods to handle new features of our problem while still maintaining the accuracy historical scientists have worked so hard to provide.
Join me on a journey of the history of one route of numerical methods for solving complex physical systems.
