High Performance Computing Class (Math/ComS/CprE 525), Spring 2016

The graduate course, "High Performance Computing," Math/ComS/CprE 525 will be offered this Spring 2016.

High Performance Computing (HPC) has become a critical technology for science, engineering, and financial research and development.

This course will teach High Performance Computing (HPC) concepts and terminology, HPC machine architecture, how to use debugging and performance tools, advanced parallel programming with MPI, OpenMP and possibly OpenACC and/or CUDA. An oral and written semester project is required of each student. The semester project gives students the opportunity to apply concepts learned to their research interests.

This course is a lecture & lab, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in 449 Carver. 2 hours
of lecture and 2 hours of lab each week.

Students may sign up for the course either as Math, ComS, or CprE 525. Prerequisites areMath/ComS/CprE 424, experience programming in Fortran or C, or permission of the instructor.
