We will read and discuss recent advancements in parallel architectures, and learn about recent parallel processors. We will also learn a bit about parallel applications and a dvancements in parallel programming such as CUDA, transactional memory, etc., which could influence the design of future parallel processors. There will be two programming assignment, two exams, a final research project and quiz questions on the readings.
