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.

From the academic year 2022-2023 on every student has to register for courses with the new enrollment tool MyStudyMap. There are two registration periods per year: registration for the fall semester opens in July and registration for the spring semester opens in December. Please see this page for more information.
Please note that it is compulsory to both preregister and confirm your participation for every exam and retake. Not being registered for a course means that you are not allowed to participate in the final exam of the course. Confirming your exam participation is possible until ten days before the exam.
