The talk will review recent algorithms that are enabling state-of-the-art lattice QCD simulations. We will begin with an overview of the developments that have been crucial in simulating fermions at physical quark masses and fine lattice spacings. This will include an overview on iterative linear solver methods, such as multi-grid methods, and challenges arising from large scale Markov-chain Monte Carlo simulations on state-of-the-art HPC machines.

We will also discuss promising methods that could potentially alleviate topological freezing, to enable simulations at very fine lattice spacings close to the continuum.
