This objective of this course is to familiarize students from various disciplines in the science of problem solving. This includes basic computational tools (matlab, mathematica, PSEs), computational kernels of important problems, and core techniques for solving the problems. It emphasizes computer simulations as an important design tool, the role of high performance computing in large scale simulations, and the Grand Challenge problems.
