NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Crash Course in Supercomputing

This is a one day course that Rebecca Hartman-Baker presented at the 2020 Computing Sciences Summer Students Program. 

In this two-part course, students will learn to write parallel programs that can be run on a supercomputer. We begin by discussing the concepts of parallelization before introducing MPI and OpenMP, the two leading parallel programming libraries. Finally, the students will put together all the concepts from the class by programming, compiling, and running a parallel code on one of the NERSC supercomputers.
