Most of the course material is covered by:
I suggest consulting also these books, available as ebooks from major electronic book stores and in paper copy:
This is the page hosting pointers to SKEPU material as well as the code shown during lessons.
During the course we will often refer to/use the Fastflow parallel programming framework. The available FastFlow material and the code used during the lessons is accessible through the FastFlow SPM page
Skandium is the Java based skeleton based programming framework by Mario Leyton, targeting multicore architectures. The Skandium web page hosts sample code and documentation as well as links to download the source and compiled framework code. The Skandium material may also be found on a GIT repository as well at the side github.com/mleyton/Skandium. A clone of the original Skandium web site (as of 2012, May 31) has been installed on http://backus.di.unipi.it/~marcod/SkandiumClone/skandium.niclabs.cl/index.html
The version 1.0b2 of Skandium is accessible also via the following links:
The patch described during the lessons relative to the bug in the Skandium runtime consists in using this Skandium.java file instead of the one in 1.02b.
Muesli is the C++ based skeleton library by H. Kuchen from the Univ. of Muenster (D). Here are the links to the relevant material available on the library:
SkeTo is the C++ based skeleton library from Univ. of Tokyo. More information on the SkeTo home page and on the 1.10 manual.
Part of the most innovative arguments in the course have been and are influenced by our (di.unipi) participation in the EU FP7 Projects ParaPhrase and REPARA.
The Dept. of Computer Science kindly agree to give access to the students to a machine with 2 Xeon PHI boards. This page hosts instructions on how to use the Xeon Phi machine.
The previous Academic Year material is still available at this link
