Numerical simulation is considered nowadays as the third main methodical approach in science, complementary to theory and experimental investigation. Born as a result of the development of approximate methods to solve numerically the mathematical problems formulated in the theory, it extends today beyond its numerical analysis to direct modeling of systems and processes. This gives rise to the label “Computational Modeling”.
