Advanced numerical algorithms are used to calculate large-scale scientific problems requiring long computing time, involved in various fields of science and engineering. Large parallel computers and bigger and much faster computers apply ordinary differential equations to solve such problems. Scientists are able handle bigger data sets to solve problems and provide solutions that are closer to reality, are more useful details, and provide reliable answers to questions. Large problems can be solved without optimizing the computational process on workstations and PCs. The requirements of a solution include need to calculate more accurate and reliable results and obtaining more detailed information. Thus, the fastest available computers will always be needed for the successful solution of most important for the modern society problem tasks.
