Computing and science reveal a synergic relationship. On the one hand, it is widely evident that computing plays an important role in the scientific endeavor. On the other hand, the role of scientific method in computing is getting increasingly important, especially in providing ways to experimentally evaluate the properties of complex computing systems. This book critically presents these issues from a unitary conceptual and methodological perspective by addressing specific case studies at the intersection between computing and science. The book originates from, and collects the experience of, a course for PhD students in Information Engineering held at the Politecnico di Milano. Following the structure of the course, the book features contributions from some researchers who are working at the intersection between computing and science.
Francesco Amigoni (in 1999 a visiting scholar at the Computer Science Department of the Stanford University (USA), is an associate professor at the Department of Elettronics and Information of the Politecnico di Milano. His main research interests include: agents and multiagent systems, mobile robotics, and the philosophical aspects o...
