Admission requirements

Bachelor Computer Science


In parallel Programming II we will study parallel programming models and especially tUPL. tUPL was introduced in the course on Parallel Programming I and in this course we elaborate on this programming model and study its theoretical and algorithmic foundations as well as the practical implications. The course requires a sound theoretical background in algorithms, theoretical computer science and programming skills in Python/C/C++.

Course objectives

To acquire a more fundamental notion/insight into the limitations and possibilities of parallel programming.
