Description

This Lecture considers the topic of parallel computer architecture. It primarily focuses on the design principles of parallel computer architecture but covers some aspects of programming for parallel computer architecture. The lecture considers the following topics:

  • Instruction Level Parallelism: Superscalar Architectures, Speculative Execution, VLIW Architectures
  • Multicore-/Multiprocessor-Architectures
  • Caches in Shared Memory Architectures. Cache-Coherency
  • Shared Memory Architectures and Synchronisation
  • Interconnection Networks (Topology, Switching, Routing)
  • Heterogeneous Architectures
  • GPU
  • Parallel Programming

This years edition of parallel computer architecture will be held by Dr. Kubilay Atasu.

The Lectures of this years edition will be held in English, the acompanying exercises are in German.
