On april 2-23 2013. «Programming on multi-processor systems» course

The lectures «Programming on multi-processor systems» took place from 2 to 23 April 2013, four two-hour lectures in total. The course was organized by M.I. Polykarpov at ITEP in bld. 180 room 418 (11:00-12:30). The topics of the lectures were aimed to give the listeners basic knowledge in programming on the ITEP FAIR Tier 1 supercomputer (now in construction). The first two lectures were given by the candidate of phys.-math. sciences Ryabkov O.I., the last two-by the candidate of phys.-math. sciences Ulibishev M.V. (MSU, ITEP). The programme of the lectures is down below.
