Introduction to High Performance Computing (Math/ComS/CprE 424X), Fall 2014

This news item expired September 21, 2014. It may contain out-of-date information.

The undergraduate course Math/ComS/CprE 424X, "Introduction to High Performance Computing," will be offered again this Fall.

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

This new course will provide an introduction to HPC by teaching the basic concepts of serial and parallel high performance computing and by teaching students to apply this knowledge to developing parallel applications using the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

Concepts will be illustrated using applications such as numerical linear algebra. A written and oral semester project from each student is required.

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

Students may sign up for the course either as Math, ComS, or CprE 424X. Prerequisites are either permission of the instructor or a knowledge of calculus (Math 265) and linear algebra (Math 207 or 317).
