Parallel Programming Practical

2019-2020
Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

Obtain practical experience with parallel programming using different
programming systems.

Inhoud vak

During this practical, several parallel programs have to be written,
using different programming environments, including Java, MPI,
and Chapel. The programs must be tested on a parallel machine of the
faculty (see http://www.cs.vu.nl/das4) and the performance (speedups) of
the programs must be measured, analyzed, and, whenever necessary,
optimized. A brief report must be written that presents for each problem
the implementation approach taken and discusses the outcomes of the
experiments conducted.

Onderwijsvorm

Practical computer work; students work on their own; there is one
(kickoff) meeting and supervision from assistants.

Toetsvorm

Practical computer work (75%) and final report (25%).

There is no resit opportunity for the practical assignments.

Vereiste voorkennis

Knowledge of parallel programming in Java/Ibis, MPI, and Chapel (as
taught in the Parallel Programming course) is required, as well as
practical experience with C and Java.

Doelgroep

Masters Computer Science, PDCS, AI, and Computational Science
