Parallelization with MPI and OpenMP

Research & Science
Parallelization with MPI and OpenMP

Overview

The focus is on the programming models MPI and OpenMP. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and the shared memory directives of OpenMP. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. This course is organized by the University of Mainz in cooperation with HLRS. (Content Level: 70% for beginners, 30% advanced)
