關於Computation的意思和用法的提問

"Computation"的近義詞和區別

Q: computation 和 calculation 的差別在哪裡?
A:

They are usually interchangeable.

Calculation" is more often associated with arithmetic processes, whereas "computation" is often associated with algorithmic processes.


Q: computation time 和 computational time 和 compute time 和 computing time 的差別在哪裡?
A: I believe there is some confusion with these terms today because they are currently evolving from their traditional meanings to more modern meanings.

First of all "computation" and "computational" are more mathematical terms than "compute" and "computing" and are typically related to making a calculation with numbers, not necessarily by using a computer, but perhaps simply with just a calculator.

~~~~~~

"Computation" is a noun, and "computational" is the related adjective. Examples:

"The results of the computation made no sense at all. There must have been some errors in the computational method that was used."

~~~~~~

"Compute" is a verb that usually means to perform a computation, especially using a computer. But it can also mean to come to a conclusion by thinking about some problem that is not necessarily mathematical. Examples:

"If you could just come up with some method to compute the trajectory of the rocket using pencil and paper, then I could write a software program to do the same thing."

"I don't understand how he can like such horrible music. It just doesn't compute!"

~~~~~~

"Computing" is a noun that nowadays mostly means to use computers. Example:

"You should study computing - perhaps computer science, or computer engineering, or business programming."

~~~~~~

I hope this helped you to understand these terms. Please feel free to ask questions and I will do my best to answer! :)
