### Mission

The
Working Group is intended to be a forum within ERCIM Institutional
Organizations in which a cross fertilization between numerical
techniques used in different fields of scientific computing might take
place. Thus, the Working Group intends to focus on this underpinning
theme of computational and numerical mathematics. In this way, the
intention is that any resulting numerical algorithm will achieve wider
applicability, greater robustness, and better accuracy.

The Working
Group looks forward to broadening the scope
of its main research topics - Numerical Linear Algebra.
- Numerical Solution of Differential Equations.
- Continuous Optimization and Optimal Control.
- Large Scale Scientific Computing.

Several
areas of applications are likely to benefit
from the
results and activities of the Working Group. For example, the
simulation of
electromagnetic phenomena, electrical circuit theory,
errors-in-variable modelling
and mathematical statistics, computational chemistry, computational
biology,
computational materials, CFD and structural engineering, mathematics
for
financial derivatives, finite-element modelling for medical simulation,
and
environmental modelling and image processing.

Finally, the Working Group will promote, through its members, all possible initiatives within the European Programmes for Research. We will encourage grant applications and involvement in the research, technological development and demonstration (RTD) framework programmes of the EU.
