Parallel Programming with Cilk and Cuda
Spezielle Kapitel in Informatik (3KV)
Summer Semester 2010
After two Pthreads programming courses we decided to look at two different parallel programming paradigms: The first language is Cilk, which is more abstract than Pthreads, but otherwise runs on the same kind of hardware. Additionally we will have a look at Nvidia's GPU programming language Cuda, which is even closer to the machine.
