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 LRZ, HLRS, Uni. Kassel, SFB/TRR30, and IAG.
Wednesday+Thursday: Basics of linear algebra
Monday+Tuesday+Friday: Unix / C or Fortran
The course language is German.
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-3.1 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP (about 13 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.
via online registration form. Course number is 2016-ITER-G.
for registration is Aug. 21, 2016 (extended deadline).
Late registrations after the deadline are still possible but maybe with reduced quality of the handouts.
