Module DescriptionThis module covers advanced parallel computing topics, starting with an overview of programming models as used for universal systems (like MIPS) as well as special purpose machines. Next, the principles of micro-processor architectures are introduced, putting the focus on pipelining and related methods to increase execution performance. The third block of this lecture then covers compute systems with multiple processors/computational units, including multi-threading, multi-core systems, and clusters.
Module Outcomes Completing this module, students acquire: - understanding of the theoretical foundations of parallel computing systems - principles of programming models, challenges, and approaches to solutions for multi-processor and multi-core systems - insights into parallel computing architectures, including design principles, obstacles, and existing implementations
