Dongarra Calls for Renewed Focus on Research into High-end Math

The Department of Energy recently released a report co-chaired by UT Distinguished Professor Jack Dongarra in which he stresses the importance of prioritizing research into high-end mathematics to help keep the United States on the cutting edge of computing.

“Exascale computing (capable of one quintillion floating point operations per second) will enable us to solve problems in ways that are not feasible today and will result in significant scientific breakthroughs,” said Dongarra, of the Min H. Kao Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. “However, the transition to exascale poses numerous scientific and technological challenges.”
