Call for papers: Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

A special issue of International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology

With the rapid development of computer science and technology, "computing" has become the third approach of science research. Scientific computing is the field of study concerned with constructing mathematical models and numerical solution techniques and using computers to analyse and solve scientific, social scientific and engineering problems. In practical use, it is typically the application of computer simulation and other forms of computation to problems in various scientific disciplines.

Numerical analysis is an important underpinning for techniques used in computational science and there are many unresolved problems worth studying. In this special issue, we solicit original work in all areas of computational science. In particular, we seek original work on identifying new research and development challenges and developing new techniques and algorithms in numerical analysis and scientific computing.

Specific topics include, but not limited to, the following:
  • Parallel computing modelling
  • Parallel computing applications
  • Grid computing
  • Cloud computing
  • Performance evaluation of parallel software
  • Analysis of ODE and PDE problems and applications
  • Numerical methods for PDE's: finite element, meshless methods
  • Approximation, radial basis functions, scattered data approximation
  • Methods for integration on a uniform and non-uniform mesh
  • Dynamical systems
  • Computer aided geometric design
  • Numerical approximation and computational geometry
  • Applications of scientific computing
  • Others and emerging new topics
Important Dates
Manuscript due date: 10 October, 2010
Notification of acceptance: 10 January, 2011
Submission of final manuscript: 10 February, 2011
