Название: The third branch of physics: essays on scientific computing
Автор: Schoerghofer N.
Fundamental scientic discoveries have been made with the help of computational methods. For instance, commonalities in the behavior of chaotic systems, most prominently Feigenbaum universality, had not been discovered or understood without computers. And only with numerical computations is it possible to predict the mass of the proton so accurately that fundamental theories of matter can be put to test. Such examples highlight the enormous role of numerical calculations for basic science.
