The Introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) course introduces fundamental HPC principles and techniques that can be used to address problems in computational science and engineering domains.
After motivating the use of HPC as a complement to theory and experiment and introducing the basic concepts of parallel computing, we outline the hardware design of modern HPC platforms and the parallel programming models that they support. The principal methods of measuring and characterising serial and parallel performance are then covered.
This course is taught using a mix of presentations and hands-on practical sessions. The practical session covers, logging into the ICHEC systems, code compilation, makefiles, batch job submission, speed-up measurement and the use of a taskfarm, optimization flags, libraries and debuggers.
