Graphical Processing Unit - a specialized, relatively inexpensive hardware unit built for fast graphical computations and highly data-parallel scientific computations.
A method of finding nearly-optimal solutions to a problem. Generally, this terminology is applied to algorithms and heuristics for solving NP-Hard problems in computer science.
the process of measuring and establishing a relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables.
A partial differential equation that describes diffusion phenomena.

Questions relating to graphing and displaying the results of scientific computations.
The branch of chemistry dealing with the use of mathematical models to solve problems in chemistry.
An approach to solving systems of equations by projecting the problem from a fine scale representation onto a coarser one. A coarse representation generally has fewer unknowns, making it faster to so…

A field of combinatorics relating to the study of vertices and the edges that connect them
A popular krylov subspace method for solving linear systems of equations, particularly those that exhibit symmetric positive definiteness.
To move in some direction (as a fluid does in a pipe). Often contrasted with diffusion, which is a spreading out without necessarily having any movement of the field as a whole.
the process of evaluating data using analytical and logical reasoning to examine each component of the data provided.
Issues related to the representation of numerical quantities in a finite representation in a given base differing from their exact mathematical value.

Questions on the algorithms for and uses of (pseudo)random number generators in scientific computing.
Studies the behavior of solid materials, and deformation under the action of forces
timestepping methods that use an inversion at every timestep. This allows for much better stability properties than explicit methods, though it comes with a serious speed penalty …
Referring to Krylov Subspaces and the methods of solutions to linear systems of equations which exploit these spaces.
a branch of mathematics. Geometry studies the spatial relationships and forms of objects, as well as other relationships and forms, similar to the spatial in its structure.
For questions regarding the numerical treatment of processes whose behaviors are determined by both deterministic (predictable) and non-deterministic (random) actions.
