2D1285, Numerical Algorithms for Parallel Computers, 4 poäng

Students who intend to take the examination in January 2006 shall contact me as soon as possible but not later than December 14, 2005.

General description

The course describes how numerical algorithms, mostly in linear algebra can be made efficient on a parallel computer.

Topics: Concurrent implementation of matrix-vector operations, LU- and QR- decomposition of a matrix, fast Fourier transform, iterative methods for Poisson's equation, and multi-grid methods.

The course is a part of the international masters program in scientific computing, and can also be studied by PhD students, or engineering students.

Formal description, that is, the text in the studiehandbook.
