By WebmasterNews

A Ph.D. course on “Introduction to High-Performance Computing” (FDD3258) will be given in P1, 2020.
FDD3258 is a 7.5 credit course, and it will be offered online.

This course provides the necessary skills needed to program HPC resources, such as supercomputers. The course is divided into four modules:

  • Modern HPC architectures and performance modeling
  • Shared memory programming with OpenMP
  • Distributed memory programming with MPI
  • GPU architecture and GPU Programming with CUDA

The prerequisite for taking the course is a good knowledge of Linux commands, C/C++, or Fortran (all the programming examples will be in C, though).

If you are interested in taking the course, please send an email with your name and affiliation at markidis@kth.se so you can be added to the Canvas course webpage.
