A major challenge for supercomputing today is to demonstrate how advances in HPC technology translate to accelerated progress in key application domains. This is the focus of an exciting new program in the US called the “National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI)” – announced by President Obama as an Executive Order on July 29, 2015 involving all research & development (R&D) programs in the country to “enhance strategic advantage in HPC for security, competitiveness, and discovery.” A strong focus in key application domains is to accelerate progress in advanced codes that model complex physical systems -- especially with respect to reduction in “time-to-solution” as well as “energy to solution.” It is understood that if properly validated against experimental measurements/observational data and verified with mathematical tests and computational benchmarks, these codes can greatly improve much-needed predictive capability in many strategically important areas of interest.

As we enter the “era of big data” we are facing a deluge of data – our challenge will be how to turn data into knowledge.
We present the new Singular-Value Decomposition Multigrid POTFIT (SVD-MGPF), a grid-based tensor decomposition algorithm for large dimensional systems with particular focus on Quantum Dynamical problems.
