Computational modelling and simulation is attractive because it connects to so many applications and naturally lends itself to collaborations with other fields. Successful applications in biology, stochastic processes and accompanying connections to numerical linear algebra, are showcased by example. For instance, Markov processes with exponential waiting times are compared to non-Markov processes with non-exponential waiting times and with `memory.’ Open questions and exciting opportunities for future research are highlighted.
