Scientific computing is the field of study concerned with constructing mathematical models and quantitative analysis techniques and using computers to analyse and solve research problems. It is typically the application of computer simulation and other forms of computation to solve problems in various scientific disciplines. Scientific computing is relatively new field and it is distinct from computer science. So scientific computing involves developing computer programs and application software, that can model system being studied and this program can then be run using various set of input parameters.
