**Numerical analysis**, area of **mathematics** and computer science that creates, analyzes, and implements algorithms for obtaining **numerical** solutions to problems involving continuous variables. Such problems arise throughout the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, medicine, and business.

Accordingly, why do we use numerical methods?

Most mathematical models **used** in the natural sciences and engineering are based on ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, and integral equations. **Numerical methods** for solving these equations are primarily of two types. Such **numerical procedures** are often called finite difference **methods**.

What is numerical and analytical solution?

In contrast to this, some problems are solved via other means. If, instead of using the quadratic formula, you try a lot of values for x and y, this is a **numerical solution**. Some problems simply do not have **analytical solutions** and must be approximated using **numerical** methods -- for example, many complicated integrals.

What is numerical programming?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This category lists those **programming** languages that provide adequate support for **numerical programming**. (As opposed to symbolic mathematics).
