 Synopsis:

In the introductory lectures, we will focus on general approaches to design of parallel algorithms and their properties important for understanding the fundamental principles of parallel and distributed algorithms. Subsequently we will talk about fundamental parallel algorithms; typically, constituting cornerstones of algorithms for realworld problems. The laboratory exercise will be aimed at hardware platform commonly used in practice.
