ECE 508 -
Algorithm techniques for enhancing the scalability of parallel software: scatter vs. gather, problem decomposition, spatial sorting and binning, privatization for reduced conflicts, tiling for data locality, regularization for improved load balance, compaction to conserve memory bandwidth, double-buffering to overlap latencies, and data layout for improved efficiency of DRAM accesses. Course Information: Same as CS 508. 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: ECE 408 or CS 420.
