Applied mathematics is used throughout the design process, from deriving governing equations to analyzing manufacturing data. This presentation will give an overview of the steps involved in software development, focusing attention on the applied mathematics algorithms commonly used today. Potential problems with the current formulation will also be discussed. The presentation will conclude by discussing some additional applications of applied mathematics (e.g., level sets or active contours) within the design process.
