 Side-effect (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computer science, a function is said to produce a side-effect if it modifies some state other than its return value.
A function that uses side effects is referred to as referentially opaque, and one that doesn't is called referentially transparent.
Functional programming in turn is known for its minimization of side effects.

 Optimization (computer science) - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch
Grid computing or distributed computing aims to optimize the whole system, by moving tasks from computers with high usage to computers with idle time.
In computer programming, optimization usually specifically means to modify code and its compilation settings on a given computer architecture to produce more efficient software.
In computing, optimization is the process of modifying a system to improve its efficiency.

 Journal of Computer & Information Law
Indeed, all the usefulness of computer science ingenuity lies hidden in the subjective meaning of the symbols and simply doesn't occur until the computed result is applied to the context of the question solved.
Computer science modeling is an infinitely flexible abstract principle whose only use or manifestation is within a man-made objective device; while a scientific principle is a rigid concept, fixed by the natural workings of objective reality.
Computer science ingenuity however does not assure physical novelty or embodiment; and indeed, as Benson shows, mere embodiment of an algorithm is preemptive, absent a practical use limitation.

It is fair to say, however, that the recent results from theoretical computer science that attempt to exploit quantum mechanical principles for both computation and cryptography have been a great stimulus to our understanding the implications and meaning of several fundamental quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition of states, decoherence, and EPR pairs.
Until theoretical computer scientists such as Peter Shor became involved, there seemed to be insuperable fundamental obstacles confronting would-be builders of quantum computers, such as the difficulty of exact measurement and the principle of decoherence.
In recent years there has been an increasing number of collaborations between theoretical computer scientists and physicists interested in statistical mechanics.

The term has a more specific technical use in computing; see side-effect (computer science).

 RealClimate » Climate Science
The science on this is clear, and decades of research have culminated in a scientific consensus on this point.
Last week, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and 10 other leading world bodies expressed the consensus view that "there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring" and that "It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities".
Wallace's perspectives are particularly interesting because he is both a highly respected climate researcher (and National Academy of Sciences member) and, like a number of other long-time researchers in the field, was once a "skeptic" (in the best sense of the word) regarding the evidence for anthropogenic climate change.

 Definition Of Computer Science
A secondary theme of this lab was the tension between theoretical and experimental computer science.
Through carefully planned experimentation, students investigate how mathematics is used to formalize computer science, and how computer science can be used as a tool to explore mathematics.
These requirements presented us with the perfect opportunity to create a new learning community linking mathematics and computer science: a three course sequence consisting of our traditional Discrete Mathematics and Data Structures courses together with an integrative seminar where students might study and appreciate the mutually beneficial relationship which exists between mathematics and computer science.

 Callback (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Callback functions are also frequently used as a means to handle exceptions arising within the low level function, as a way to enable side-effects in response to some condition, or as a way to gather operational statistics in the course of a larger computation.
A callback can be used as a simpler alternative to polymorphism and generic programming, in that the exact behavior of a function can be dynamically determined by passing different (yet compatible) function pointers or handles to the lower level function.
In computer science, a callback is executable code that is passed as a parameter to other code.
