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.
