SAC’05 For the past twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. 2. RCA Track: Motivations Many numerical computations, be they solutions to systems of differential equa- tions or optimization problems coming from applied areas like protein folding, do not provide us with guaranteed computation results. In many situations, we have numerical solutions, we may even have a theorem guaranteeing that eventually, this numerical solution tends to the actual precise one, but the algorithm itself does not provide us with guaranteed bounds on the difference between the numerical approximate solution and the desired actual one. Therefore, in some practical situations, numerical solutions are much farther from the actual (unknown) precise solutions than the users assume. As a result, we often end up with inefficient local maxima for practical optimization problems like chemical engineering—or even with a mission failure if we are planning, e.g., a Reliable Computing Springer Journals
