CS3210 Parallel Computing - AY 2011/12 – Semester 1






Tutorials & Labs































This module provides an introduction to parallel computing with hands-on parallel programming experience on real parallel machines. The module is divided into four parts: parallel computation models and parallelism, parallel architectures, parallel algorithm design and programming, and new parallel computing models. Topics include: theory of parallelism and models; shared-memory architectures; distributed-memory architectures; data parallel architectures; interconnection networks, topologies and basic of communication operations; principles of parallel algorithm design; performance and scalability of parallel programs; new parallel computing models such as grid, cloud (the focus this year), GPGPU.
