Symbolic Computation: Applications to Scientific ComputingSymbolic Computation: Applications to Scientific Computing

Robert Grossman, Editor

Frontiers in Applied Mathematics 5

Here is a monograph that describes current research efforts in the application of symbolic computation to several areas, including dynamical systems, differential geometry, Lie algebras, numerical analysis, fluid dynamics, perturbation theory, control theory, and mechanics. The chapters, which illustrate how symbolic computations can be used to study various mathematical structures, are outgrowths of the invited talks that were presented at the NASA-Ames Workshop on The Use of Symbolic Methods to Solve Algebraic and Geometric Problems Arising in Engineering. More than 100 people participated in the two-day conference, which took place in January 1987 at the NASA-Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California.

The field of symbolic computation is becoming increasingly important in science, engineering, and mathematics. The availability of powerful computer algebra systems on workstations has made symbolic computation an important tool for many researchers.
