# Optimization of a computational method

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

Usually the same as optimization of computational algorithms. Sometimes, however, these concepts are treated differently. For example, it is possible to speak of the optimality of a concrete grid method for solving a boundary value problem in some class of problems, meaning that it requires the calculation of the right-hand side at a minimal number of points. When examining questions of the optimization of a computational algorithm, a number of other aspects are also studied: methods for solving the system of grid equations that arises, the program realization of these methods, etc.
