The ESSEX project investigates computational issues arising at exascale for large-scale sparse eigenvalue problems and develops programming concepts and numerical methods for their solution. The project pursues a coherent co-design of all software layers where a holistic performance engineering process guides code development across the classic boundaries of application, numerical method, and basic kernel library. Within ESSEX the numerical methods cover widely applicable solvers such as

This report introduces the project structure and presents selected results which demonstrate the potential impact of ESSEX for efficient sparse solvers on highly scalable heterogeneous supercomputers.
