Iterative Linear Solvers and Parallelization

Enterprises & SME Research & Science
Iterative Linear Solvers and Parallelization

Abstract

The focus is on iterative and parallel solvers, the parallel programming models MPI and OpenMP, and the parallel middleware PETSc. Thereby, different modern Krylov Subspace Methods (CG, GMRES, BiCGSTAB ...) as well as highly efficient preconditioning techniques are presented in the context of real life applications. Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of iterative solvers, 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. It is organized by HLRS, IAG, Uni. Kassel, and SFB/TRR30.

General Information

Agenda

(see link to detailed program)

Caution: Due to urgent constraints, we had to modify the original agenda. The course will have the following modified outline:

Monday - Tuesday: Iterative solvers.
Tuesday afternoon - Thursday: Parallelization with MPI and OpenMP.
Friday: Parallelization of iterative solvers.

Our apologies for this late change of the schedule.

PRACE PATC and bwHPC-C5

HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012.
HLRS is also member of the Baden-Württemberg initiative bwHPC-C5.
This course is provided within the framework of the bwHPC-C5 user Support. This course is not part of the PATC curriculum and is not sponsored by the PATC program.

Cancelation Policy

If you cannot come to the course, please send an email to the organizer as soon as possible. This would allow us to accept additional participants from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is too expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).

Handouts

Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.

If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.0 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP (about 10 Euro). An older version of this course with most of the material (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
