Why we use the name Computational Science? I wonder why this name rather than Applied Mathematics.

"Applied Math" is probably too wide, as we are focusing on computational solutions of various applied math problems. Moreover, the term "computational science [and engineering]" is a common term used for various academic and non-academic programs, institutions, etc.

A little bit more insight into the naming of this Stack Exchange community can be found on the corresponding Area 51 page.
