PPSC 2022F

Programming and Parallel Scientific Computing


The course provides an introduction to C++ programming and algorithms with a focus on scientific computing using Cimlib_CFD. An overview of the C++ language is provided: specification, arithmetics, memory, performance, object-oriented design for component-based software, and advanced topics in numerics using templates. Distributed and shared-memory parallel computing are then approached with exercises related to numerical methods for PDEs.
