Problem-Solving Environments

Problem-solving enviroments (PSEs) are computer systems that provide all the computational facilities to solve a target class of problems. These facilities include solution methods, checking the problem formulation, visualizing the solution, selecting computers, etc. Ideal PSEs will make many decisions for users. The speakers will discuss the current possibilities for creating effective frameworks for PSEs and the use of software components to construct PSEs. PSEs within the scope of this minisymposium are targeted to scientific computing and thus can make use of the large existing inventory of libraries and software components.
