Course 2010-C at HLRS, Stuttgart
HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart),
Allmandring 30, D-70550 Stuttgart
||2010, Monday Mar. 22, 8:30 - Friday Mar. 26, 15:30
||Iterative Linear Solvers and Parallelization
The focus is on iterative and parallel solvers,
the parallel programming models MPI and OpenMP,
and the parallel middleware PETSc.
Thereby, different modern Krylov Subspace Methods
(CG, GMRES, BiCGSTAB ...) as well as highly efficient
preconditioning techniques are presented in the context
of real life applications.
Hands-on sessions (in C and Fortran) will allow users
to immediately test and understand the basic
constructs of iterative solvers, the Message Passing Interface (MPI)
and the shared memory directives of OpenMP.
This course is organized by HLRS, IAG, and Uni. Kassel.
