Principal Investigators: Scott Pakin, lead, Los Alamos National Laboratory; Samuel Williams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL); Shirley Moore, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Cy Chan, LBNL

The Analytical Modeling Working Group generates and applies high-level (but fast-to-evaluate) models of future exascale-class architectures. These high-level analytic models will be used to conduct broader architecture analysis and then select the most promising architectural designs for deeper study (using higher-fidelity models).

The US Department of Energy has some of the foremost analytical modeling tools and experts in the world. The studies performed within this project will build on this established capability and, where required, will support moderate extensions for existing tools.
