Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Upon the successful completion of the subject students will be able to: implement demanding parallel algorithms for hybrid platforms with complicated structure of inter-process communication. practically learn about the potential and limitations of the state-of-the-art methods of parallel programming enabling them to choose an optimal tool for algorithms parallelization tune, profiling, and optimize parallel applications
