High-Performance and Grid Computing, Cyberinfrastructure, and Computational Science

Computational Science is an emerging discipline that unites computer science and mathematics with disciplinary research in biology, chemistry, physics, and other applied and engineering fields. It is already being called the third science, complementing theoretical as well as laboratory science. A major focus of computational science is the knowledge and techniques required to perform computer simulation. The importance of simulation can be found in “grand challenge” problems in areas such as structural biology, materials science, high-energy physics, economics, fluid dynamics, and global climate change, to name a few.
