  1. Opportunities for Lattice Gauge Theory in the Era of Exascale Computing

Abstract.

This document is one of a series of white papers from the USQCD Collaboration. Here, we outline the opportunities for, prospects of and challenges to the Lattice QCD calculations relevant for the understanding of the phases and properties of hot-dense QCD matter. This program of Lattice QCD calculations is relevant to current and upcoming heavy-ion experimental programs at RHIC and LHC.
