Course objectives
Principles of algorithm acceleration, aplication of the parallelism design, aplication of the hybrid systems, acceleration based on data types, data array, and program structures.
  • Principles of algotithm acceleraton Application of the parallelism and computional capacity distribution Using of the hybrid systems and harware accelerators Acceleration in depence on data types - double, init a char Acceleration based on data array types - blank, scalar, vector Acceleration in depence on program structures - cycles and conditional statement based on conditon of the acalar value.
