Mathematics and Computer Science stimulate and inspire each other since the formation of the latter in the last century. Mathematical thinking can be traced back to ancient times where nothing like a computer existed. Nevertheless, people were interested in counting, measuring, and comparing objects. Therefore, not only different types of numbers evolved but also the desire of calculating hidden properties of things and processes. This led to algorithms, one of the sources and
research objects of nowadays Computer Science.
The increasing power offered by High-Performance Computing (HPC) within the last decades had and has a big impact on the applicability and the design of mathematical algorithms. Existing algorithms could be successfully applied to more and more complex problems from natural and engineering sciences.
