I would like to see the numerics tag replaced, because
- it 'works' only because of a mutual misunderstanding. As for science, 'Numerics' refers to the investigation of numeric patterns. The first search result in Wikipedia, that bears numerics in its title, is bible numerics
- the way it is used, it is not specific. SciComp itself already is about numerical approaches in sciences. Cf. also the tag wiki: "Questions on the aspects of numerical methods/analysis relevant to scientific computing."
- if it is used to direct to theoretical results, numerical-analysis would be the right tag
- if it is used to direct to numerical methods, there are more specific tags like iterative-solver or finite-elements.
So the question is: Is there a need to do such a global replacement and, if there was an agreement on this, how to do this best?
