Douglass Post , Los Alamos National Laboratory
<p>The march toward increased computing power has opened new vistas and opportunities for computer simulations of nonlinear, complex, physical phenomena that involve the interaction of many different effects. In August 2002, the Los Alamos National Laboratory Center for Nonlinear Studies examined the state of the art of this capability in a conference entitled "Frontiers of Simulation." The editors of CiSE invited a number of conference speakers to write articles that illustrate the power and variety of current computer simulations. </p>
