Computation and simulation have a rich history in the nuclear enterprise. When combined with modern theory and informed by experimental data, virtual scientific exploration can lead to unparalleled technological advances. But while simulations can be predictive, they can also be dead wrong, leading to the potential for devastating errors in judgment. In this panel session we will explore some of the triumphs of computation and dissect those instances when overreliance on simulation has led us astray. With real-world examples, we will show how the nuclear professional community has been at the forefront of computation and how nuclear science remains at the cutting edge today by using high-performance computing, machine learning, and other methods.
