Worthwhile computer simulations are done to explore uncharted
territory, resolve a well-posed scientific or technical question, or to
make a design choice.
Some excellent work is reviewed. Some less happy stories are recounted.
I then concentrate my attention upon astrophysical simulations, showing
how they can explore possible scenarios for stellar explosions.
