CSE 160 (Fall 2006) CSE 160 (Fall 2006) Introduction to Parallel Computation Course Description Parallel computation has a rich and varied history, and the techniques for solving problems on parallel computers are both intriguing and intellectually appealing. CSE 160 will introduce students to Parallel Computation and its application to problems--ordinary and extraordinary--arising in "everyday" computing, as well as in computational science and engineering. The goal of the course is to learn how to devise and implement parallel algorithms, to understand performance tradeoffs, and to learn how to generalize these skills to new problems. The course will provide an overview of important topics and issues for parallel architectures, models, algorithms and software. A study of modest scale parallelism on shared memory multiprocessors will prepare students for devising and implementing parallel algorithms to utilize multi-core processors, which are becoming prevalent today, and will grow to increased scales of integration. The course provides a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
