Technical computing is the application of the mathematical and computational principles of scientific computing to solve practical problems of industrial interest. The distinction between technical computing and scientific computing is similar to the distinction between high-performance computing and high-performance technical computing. Technical computing may involve the use of large-scale high-performance supercomputers, but in most cases, the technical problems may be solvable using modern laptops or small servers.
