SIAM Journals - The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in these various application areas. Applied mathematics in partnership with computational science is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research, and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) - The most extensive online resource on mechanical engineering which includes technical papers from journals and conference proceedings published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).


Algorithm - In mathematics, computing, linguistics and related subjects, an algorithm is a finite sequence of instructions, an explicit, step-by-step procedure for solving a problem, often used for calculation and data processing. It is formally a type of effective method in which a list of well-defined instructions for completing a task, will when given an initial state, proceed through a well-defined series of successive states, eventually terminating in an end-state.

Cloud Computing - Cloud computing is a jargon term without a commonly accepted non-ambiguous scientific or technical definition. Some analysts and vendors define cloud computing narrowly as an updated version of utility computing: basically virtual servers available over the Internet. Others go very broad, arguing anything you consume outside the firewall is “in the cloud,” including conventional outsourcing.
