This is an advanced numerical analysis class, with emphasis on methods that are suitable for parallel scientific computing. Students will obtain experience in parallel computing using message passing and using threads. The class should be of interest to students in mathematics, computer science, or one of the applied sciences. Students must have good training in computer programming in a high level language. The class will require programming in C/C++ or Fortran. Prerequisites are Numerical Methods I (G22.2420/G63.2010) or Scientific Computing (G22.2112/G63.2043).
