In this article we give an overview of the application of theories from dynamical systems to the analysis of numerical methods for initial-value problems. We start by describing the classical viewpoints of numerical analysis and of dynamical systems and then indicate how the two viewpoints can be merged to provide a framework for both the interpretation of data obtained from numerical simulations and the design of efficient numerical methods. This is done in Section 2.
