This report details the findings and recommendations of the DOE ASCR Exascale Mathematics Working Group that was chartered to identify mathematics and algorithms research opportunities that will enable scientific applications to harness the potential of exascale computing. The working group organized a workshop, held August 21-22, 2013 in Washington, D.C., to solicit input from over seventy members of the applied mathematics community. Research gaps, approaches, and directions across the breadth of applied mathematics were discussed, and this report synthesizes these perspectives into an integrated outlook on the applied mathematics research necessary to achieve scientific breakthroughs using exascale systems.
