The Portable Extensible Toolkit for Scientific computing (PETSc) is a modular library for linear algebra, nonlinear solvers, time integrators, optimization, and spatial discretization. Solver configuration and diagnostics are valuable skills for users, whether calling PETSc directly or via one of many higher level packages that access PETSc solvers. This tutorial will start with an introduction to distributed memory parallel programming and the fundamental linear algebra components then proceed to principles of preconditioning and Krylov solvers, convergence d
The Kick- Off Meeting of the PRACE-4IP will be held in Ostrava, Czech Republic from April 28 to April 29, 2015.
Registration fee for the meeting is 100 EUR.
Preliminary schedule of the meeting is attached below.
OpenMP is the de-facto standard for shared memory parallel programming. It has been widely accepted in academia and industry for multithreaded applications in the field of High Performance Computing.
High-throughput sequencing has revolutionized the way we understand biology. With state-of-the-art technologies one can nowadays re-sequence a human genome for less than 1,000$. However, key technical problems are still present. First, with current technologies one cannot sequence a long DNA molecule as a whole, but rather only read it out as many relatively short chunks; as a result, data analysis becomes complicated.
