Preface to the special issue on computer-aided engineering

Kokichi Sugihara, Ichiro Hagiwara
2011 Japan journal of industrial and applied mathematics  
On the publication of this special issue It is our great pleasure to launch this special issue on computer-aided engineering organized by our invited guest editor, Professor Ichiro Hagiwara of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Computer-aided engineering is one of the typical areas where mathematics can be applied in a variety of ways, and indeed, this special issue covers a wide range of engineering fields from micro topics, such as hydrogen dispersion, semi-solid metals, and molecular

We appreciate Professor Hagiwara's great efforts in editing the special issue. We hope this collection of topics indicates possible future directions for industrial mathematics.
