Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Software tools in scientific computing will be discussed. The students will get familiar with using numerical libraries for sequential and parallel applications (e.g., BLAS, LAPACK, PLASMA, GNU Scientific Library, GNU MPFR), as well as particular methods and algorithms. Moreover, tools for testing and debugging scientific software will be used.

Assessment and permitted materials

The grading will be based on weekly homework and exams.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

basic shell (Bash) familiarity
moderate familiarity with programming in C
moderate familiarity with computational mathematics

At least half of the points (exams and homework, respectively) have to be achieved.

Examination topics

Programming and benchmarking scientific software with a focus on matrix computations (floating point arithmetics); topics include, but are not limited to, linear equations, eigenvalue problems, blocking algorithms, arbitrary precision arithmetics, sparse linear systems, differential equations

Reading list

There is no course book available, but the lectures will be accompanied by slides.
