Course objectives
The course introduces parallel computing techniques with focus on implementation of autonomous systems. The scope includes classical software implementations on multiprocessor and multi-core machines (the PRAM model), then cluster implementations and finally cloud computing.
  • 1. Models of non-sequential computing. PRAM and its variants. Network computing.
    2. Communication complexity aspects of PRAM computing.
    3. Parallel programming techniques: balanced trees, "divide and conquer", partitioning, pipelining, accelerated cascading.
    4. Distributed algorithms, their computational complexity, examples.
    5. Network communication algorithms, byzantine protocol problems.
    6. Cloud computing, sharing of the computing, network and storage capacity.
    7. Individual project.
