Numerical Computation

Numerical computing is an approach for solving complex mathematical problems using only simple arithmetic operations [1]. The approach involves formulation of mathematical models physical situations that can be solved with arithmetic operations [2]. It requires development, analysis and use of algorithms. Numerical computations invariably involve a large number of arithmetic calculations and, therefore, require fast and efficient computing devices [3]. the microelectronic revolution and the subsequent development of high, low cost personal computers have had a profound impact on the application of numerical computing methods to solve scientific problems [4].
