Deniz's PARALLEL MATLAB FUNDAMENTALS Training

STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE AND HOW TO FOLLOW IT

This course comprises of a mixture of video presentations, screen-captures, powerpoint-slides and example-program codes.

Attenders must have basic MATLAB knowledge to be able to take advantage of this course.

It is important that all the material is covered in the published sequence by following the instructions at each step.

WELCOME TO THE COURSE

PRELIMINARY TASKS

PART 1

STUDY PLAN

While self-studying each section you can study the referenced powerpoint slides and watch any demonstration videos that are posted.
All the example scripts used in the demonstration videos are included in the downloaded examples zip file.

You may join the two live sessions to interact with your tutor who will demonstrate parallel MATLAB.

Example scripts are organized into sub-directories whose names match the sections they belong to.
All PART-1 Examples will be demonstrated on Windows Platforms
All PART-2 Examples will be demonstrated on Linux-HPC Platforms.

  NOTE :  Most of the example scripts I used do not achieve any speed-up
          by being run in parallel. That is because the parallel
          tasks we are performing  are trivially easy and take
          very little cpu time to execute.
          The advantages of parallelising is achieved only when the time
          saved by splitting the work amongst parallel workers outweights
          the time wasted associated with starting up the workers and
          transfering the tasks to them.
