The dual role of faster computers and improved algorithms that enable high fidelity simulations and leading edge computational science will be described. Algorithmic issues in using parallel computers will be identified along with solution strategies. The computational capabilities of various computer systems and examples of their intended application areas will be discussed. The role of computer science and mathematics in enabling advances in science and engineering through simulation and modeling will be addressed.
