Hi, prompted by another person's post I was wondering whether it was possible to start a Numerical Analysis section for mathematicians, scientists and engineers. I could imagine there's a potentially large group of members who'd benefit from it. Just a suggestion.

We don't make new forums to wait for traffic, we split the old ones when it is obvious the traffic exists.

If you're referring to algorithms and programming for numerical methods, the appropriate place is the Programming & Comp Sci subforum of Computers & Technology. We occasionally have threads about Runge-Kutta methods, etc.

Thanks for your posts, makes sense. Programming for numerical methods can already be helpful, so I will look at those sections you mentioned. Runge-Kutta, finite element, finite volume, etc. was what I was also thinking of, the mathematical theory behind them, the technicalities in using them for problems, etc.

FEA/CFD/Multiphysics are often discussed under Mechanical Engineering.

Mathematical theory behind some of this is found in Calculus & Analysis or Differential Equations

Programming & Comp Sci under Computing & Technology would be the place to discuss algorithms and programming.
