An Introduction to Parallel and Vector Scientific Computing by Ronald W. Shonkwiler

By Ronald W. Shonkwiler

During this textual content, scholars of utilized arithmetic, technology and engineering are brought to basic methods of considering the huge context of parallelism. The authors commence through giving the reader a deeper knowing of the problems via a common exam of timing, info dependencies, and verbal exchange. those principles are applied with recognize to shared reminiscence, parallel and vector processing, and dispensed reminiscence cluster computing. Threads, OpenMP, and MPI are coated, in addition to code examples in Fortran, C, and Java. the foundations of parallel computation are utilized all through because the authors disguise conventional subject matters in a primary direction in clinical computing. construction at the basics of floating element illustration and numerical errors, a radical therapy of numerical linear algebra and eigenvector/eigenvalue difficulties is equipped. through learning how those algorithms parallelize, the reader is ready to discover parallelism inherent in different computations, equivalent to Monte Carlo tools.

Of course, it is to be expected that certain subtasks will go slowly; for example, input and output, the display of results so that people can interact with the computer. This time should not be held against an algorithm. What is important is that the parts of the program that can be parallelized are parallelized to the fullest extent possible. In addition to subparts of a program having to run serially, there are other limitations on the speed of computation. Heavy matrix manipulation programs come up against limited memory bandwidth very quickly.

As it is often used causually, it is not always clear to what time T1 refers. It could refer to that of a standard benchmark algorithm, or maybe to the time for the best possible algorithm for the calculation (which may not yet be known) or maybe even a serial adaptation of the parallel algorithm. Hence it is important to be explicit about its meaning. After speedup, another important consideration is the fraction of time the processors assigned to a computation are kept busy. This is called the efficiency of the parallelization using p processors and is defined by E f ( p) = SU ( p) .

An , can be done in O(log m · log n) time where A is an m × m matrix. How many processors are required? ) 7. (5) Investigate a modified fan-in algorithm in which p processors divide the n summands into blocks of size n/ p. Each processor adds the terms of its block serially. Then processing switches to the usual fan-in algorithm. For a fan-in of n = 2r elements, and, with r a power of 2 dividing n, plot SU, Ef, and the product SU∗ Ef as functions of r for (a) p = r , and (b) p = 2r /r . ) 8. (4) Show that the evaluation of an nth degree polynomial can be done in O(log n) time.
