This short course will address common problems in computational science applications and will present a number of solutions using robust numerical software tools that spawn from more than two decades of research in software development for High Performance Computing Systems. It will be particularly beneficial to scientists and engineers developing computational applications. Participants should expect to learn about techniques used to solve common computational problems, get an introduction on the use of the tools and become familiarized with criteria for selecting the techniques, methods and tools in a particular problem area. The software presented during this course is freely available and widely used by the computational sciences international community. The course includes interactive hands-on sessions for participants with all levels of computer expertise.
