GPU Programming using CUDA


The course provides an introduction to the programming language CUDA which is used to write fast numeric algorithms for NVIDIA graphics processors (GPUs). Focus is on the basic usage of the language, the exploitation of the most important features of the device (massive parallel computation, shared memory, texture memory) and efficient usage of the hardware to maximize performance. An overview of the available development tools and the advanced features of the language is given. (This course has the same content as the course in spring.)
