Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will discuss program optimisations in the context of parallel programming realized by programmers, tools, or compilers, performed either statically or dynamically at runtime. The basic ideas of translating source languages to target languages will be presented and tools will be used to assist in this process. The aim of the course is that students know about optimisations in parallel programming and can apply it in program development and are familiar with the basics of program transformations.
Topics: compiler phases, program representations, dependence analysis, code transformations, vectorization, parallelization
Method: The course consists of a lecture and programming assignments.

Assessment and permitted materials

The grading is based on the assignments and the examination at the end of the semester.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

A minimum grade of 50% must be earned in both examination and assignments and in total 50% is required as well in order to pass the course. Examination and assignments are equally weighted. The grading scale for the course is: 4 at least 50%, 3 at least 63%, 2 at least 75%, 1 at least 87%.
