Synopsis:

The most computation intensive tasks (or memory complex tasks) are solved by large HPC systems.

Seven so called „dwarfs“ were identified as typical tasks computed by HPC systems.

In this subject these „dwarfs“ are described (including their variants).

Also typical algortihms and advanced data structures for solution will be discussed.

Requirements:

Baic knowledge of principles of parallel systems

Syllabus of lectures:

1) Overview of nowadays technologies I (OpenMP and MPI)

2) Overview of nowadays technologies II (OpenACC and CUDA)

3) Single-node optimization

4) Dense linear algebra: data stuctures, operations and optimizations

5) Sparse linear algebra: data stuctures, operations and optimizations

6) 7 dwarfs: Spectral methods, N-body methods, Monte Carlo methods

7) 7 dwarfs: Structured and unstructured grids

8) More dwarfs: Graph Traversal, etc.

9) HPC debugging and profiling tools

10) Performance limits given by architecture

11) Survey of scientific libraries for HPC

12) HPC benchmarks: High Performance LINPACK vs HPCG

13) Summary
