The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Program on Advanced Scientific Computing Research has formed an Exascale Mathematics Working Group (EMWG) for the purpose of identifying mathematics and algorithms research opportunities that will enable scientific applications to harness the potential of exascale computing.

The EMWG's charter is to:

  • Analyze potential gaps in current thinking about applied mathematics for the exascale;
  • Identify new algorithmic approaches that address exascale challenges;
  • Identify mathematics to address new scientific questions accessible at exascale, especially through integration across applied mathematics sub-disciplines;
  • Identify a holistic, co-design approach for applied mathematics exascale research that more directly involves a dialogue with application scientists and computer scientists; and
  • Submit a report of the findings to the DOE Office of Science.
