Homework 1 See course home page for details. Find an application of parallel computing and build a web page describing it. Choose something from your research area. Or from the web or elsewhere. Create a web page describing the application. Describe the application and provide a reference (or link) Describe the platform where this application was run Find peak and LINPACK performance for the platform and its rank on the TOP500 list Find the performance of your selected application What ratio of sustained to peak performance is reported? Evaluate the project: How did the application scale, ie was speed roughly proportional to the number of processors? What were the major difficulties in obtaining good performance? What tools and algorithms were used? Send us (John and Hans) the link (we will post them)
