Anthony Yeates: A quick introduction to parallel computing with MPI

4:00pm, CM301

Parallel programming for distributed memory machines (e.g. the hamilton cluster) is an indispensable skill for the modern applied mathematician. In this talk, I’ve tried to distill the “theoretical minimum” that you need to know to get started, using the most common interface: MPI. This is a library that works with either Fortran or C. The talk will be structured around a simple example of the one-dimensional heat equation. I’ve uploaded the example code (both Fortran 90 and C++ versions) to, in case you want to follow along.
