Recommended prior knowlegde
High Performance Computing I.
In High Performance Computing II we will examine existing and new parallel programming models and especially tUPL. tUPL was introduced in the course on High Performance Computing I and in this course we elaborate on this programming model and study its theoretical and algorithmic foundations as well as the practical implications. The course requires a sound theoretical background in algorithms, theoretical computer science and programming skills in Python/C/C++.
To acquire a more fundamental notion/insight into the limitations and possibilities of high performance computing.
