This is a graduate level course on parallel computing with the objective to familiarize students with the fundamental concepts, techniques and tools of parallel computing. Preerquisites are an undergraduate course in parallel programming (equivalent of CS 475) and amiliarity with analysis of algorithms and complexity theory (equivalent of CS 320, or CS 420). Participation in this course will enable you to better use parallel computing in your application area, and will prepare you to take advanced courses in more specific areas of parallel computing. The schedule tab contains the weekly schedule, links to lecture notes, quizzes, homework, etc. In addition, the actual discussions will be taking place on the Piazza, which many of us have found to be much more convenient than RamCT.
