Computational Mathematics includes mathematical research in the areas of science where computers play an essential role which emphasizes on algorithms, numerical methods & symbolic methods.
It is basically used in business, industry & science. Currently, computational mathematics includes Mathematical problems solution by computer simulation, Stochastic methods, Scientific computation also known as computational engineering or computational science, Scientific computation, Symbolic computation and Computer algebra systems, Computational linguistics, the use of computer and Mathematical techniques in natural languages, Computational algebraic geometry, Computational group theory, the study of groups by means of computers, Computational geometry, branch of science dealing with computers and is devoted to algorithms, Computational number theory, also referred to as algorithmic number theory, is the study of algorithms for performing number theoretic computations., Computational topology also called as Algorithmic topology, related to computer science, Computational statistics, Algorithmic game theory etc.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
