Currently teaching

Applications of Parallel Computers (CS 5220)

Offered spring of even-number years (usually).
See F15, S14, F11, and S10.

Overview of high performance scientific computing. Basics of modern parallel machine design, parallel programming patterns, and applications. Programming projects will likely inspire creative cursing, mostly due to the frustrations of parallel profiling and debugging.

SCAN Seminar (CS/MATH 7290)

Ongoing. M 1:25-2:15, Gates 406.

The Scientific Computing and Numerics seminar series focuses on various methods in scientific computing, the analysis of convergence properties and computational efficiency, and their adaptation to specific applications.
