Pre-requisite: (CSC2410 or CSC1401) and (MAT1102 or ENM1600) or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: MPIT or MCOT or MCTE
Knowledge of basic programming structures is assumed.
This course develops skills in programming modern high performance computers. It examines some of the typical hardware architectures and how they affect performance and programming. Algorithms to illustrate the principles are chosen from a range of scientific tasks. The course includes the study of numerical solutions of linear and non-linear equations, numerical interpolation and curve fitting, the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations, and Monte Carlo simulation. Interaction utilising modern graphics is exploited.
