Computational Science

Humans think arithmetically, but God thinks logarithmically.

Computational science is different from computer science. The latter is the science of computation (e.g., the invention of efficient search and sort algorithms, techniques of parallel processing, etc.). The former is the use primarily of computation, rather than of theorizing or experimentation, to attain scientific knowledge. Computational science has been made possible by the development of high-speed computers able to perform millions of operations per second.
