CS 590S - Parallel Numerical Algorithms
This course examines both theoretical and practical aspects of numerical algorithm design and implementation on parallel computing platforms. In particular, it provides an understanding of the tradeoff between arithmetic complexity and management of hierarchical memory structures, roundoff characteristics if different from the sequential schemes, and performance evaluation and enhancement. Applications are derived from computational science and engineering.
