Parallel/Distributed Computing and Applications
Dr. Sanzheng Qiao, GS305, ext. 27234
Monday 3:00--4:30, Thursday 3:30--5:00, GS301
Study the concepts of parallel/distributed computing,
parallel algorithms and their performance,
techniques of parallel programming, and applications
of parallel/destributed computing.
Lectures and assignments. Students are encouraged
to bring projects, develop parallel programs
for the projects, run on parallel/distributed systems,
and give presentations discussing implementation,
testing, and performance issues.
Grade is based on the correctness and thoroughness of
the assignments and/or projects.
