Section ID: 570324
Lecture: Tue/Thu 2:00p - 3:20p, CNTR 207
The course will cover principles and practices of parallel programming with applications to real world problems. There will be a fair bit of programming in the course, which will culminate in a mini research project. Our computational platform will be a 16 node Linux Cluster operated by Academic Computing Services. Resources will also be available at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
The prerequisite for CSE 260 is graduate standing. It will be helpful to have an undergraduate background in computer architecture or operating systems. Students from other departments are welcome; contact me if you have any questions about your academic background.

The course has one required text:
Introduction to Parallel Computing 2nd Ed, by Grama, Gupta, Karypis, and Kumar. ISBN 0-201-64865-2, Addison-Wesley Publisher, 2003.
Be sure to get the 2nd edition.
A handy book on MPI is Parallel Programming with MPI, by P. Pacheco, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, 1997. I recommend you purchase this book if you anticipate doing a lot of MPI programming in the future, or if you are more comfortable using a text than on-line materials. (See a list of MPI reading materials at http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/users/baden/Doc/mpi.html)
