High Performance Computing Course in Spring

This news item expired November 15, 2006. It may contain out-of-date information.
The three-credit ’Numerical Analysis of High Performance Computing“ course will provide students with an introduction to the basic concepts and methodologies useful to those using high performance cluster computers. How to write efficient parallel scientific programs for high performance cluster computers using the MPI message passing libraries will be discussed in detail. The following topics will be covered during the semester:
  • Introduction to high performance computing
  • Using MPI to write high performance parallel programs for clusters
  • Serial optimization with today's microprocessors
Students will be required to do a semester project applying the principles learned in class to their own area of research (or to any area of interest to the student). Principles discussed in class will be tested on the Intel/Myrinet cluster, hpc-class, here at Iowa State University.
