The topic of this course is high-performance computing (HPC), namely heavy-duty computing on clusters or supercomputers with thousand(s) to million(s) of cores. You will learn about the main HPC architectures (tightly versus loosely coupled architectures), distributed memory and hybrid (distributed + shared memory) programming models, message-passing interface, threading, and massive parallelism with graphics processing units (GPUs).

The course runs during period II, and the first lecture is on Wed 3rd of November 13-15 over Zoom.
