University Course in Parallel Computing

I team-taught CS 442 at the University of New Mexico in the fall of 1997 with Bruce Hendrickson. The theme of the course was parallel scientific computing, with a strong distributed-memory bias. The lecture topics were mostly algorithm discussions; programming assignments were parallel codes written with MPI.

This is the class outline which includes several interesting homework and programming assignments. We used Peter Pacheko's "Parallel Programming with MPI" as a background textbook and added a lot of our own material.
