Multi-core processors yield the possibility making parallel computations on standard computers. Implementing an application using parallelisms is a nontrivial matter. The goals of the course are an theoretical and practical introduction to contemporary software technologies used for parallel programming, practically debugging parallel programs, and practically tuning parallel program performance.

Students will elaborate 5 homeworks from selected technologies for parallel and distributed computing. Each task will be scored 0-4 points depending on the speedup achieved against the reference serial version of the solution. The final grade from the exam corresponds to the sum of points obtained:

12 and over - excellent

9-11 - very well

6-8 - well

less than 6 - failed

Credit is obtained for at least 5 points, where it is necessary to have at least one point from each homework.
