SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND VISUALIZATION (Fall 08) Course Number: CSCI 596 Class Number: 30173R Instructor: Aiichiro Nakano ; office: VHE 610; phone: (213) 821-2657; email: anakano@usc.edu Lecture: 3:30-4:50pm M W, VHE 210 Office Hours: 3:30-4:50pm F Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of programming, data structures, linear algebra, and differential equations. Textbooks: W. D. Gropp, E. Lusk, and A. Skjellum, "Using MPI, 2nd Ed." (MIT Press, 1999)-- recommended M. Woo, et al., "OpenGL Programming Guide, Version 2.1, 6th Ed." (Addison-Wesley, 2007)-- recommended A. Grama, A. Gupta, G. Karypis, and V. Kumar, "Introduction to Parallel Computing, 2nd Ed." (Addison-Wesley, 2003)--recommended Course Description Particle and continuum simulations are used as a vehicle to learn basic elements of high performance scientific computing and visualization. Students will obtain hands-on experience in: 1) formulating a mathematical model to describe a physical phenomenon; 2) discretizing the model, which often consists of continuous differential or integral equations, into algebraic forms in order to allow numerical solution on computers; 3) designing/analyzing numerical algorithms to solve the algebraic equations efficiently on parallel computers; 4) translating the algorithms
