PhD Course offered to the PhD in Computer Science (Dottorato di Ricerca
in Informatica) of the UniversitÓ di Salerno
July 5th: Lesson #4 and #5 material
inserted, Bibliography updated
week of July 11th
course will introduce the problems and the solutions to scalability
issues in parallel programming. In particular, we will first
emphasize scalability in multicore processors, then we'll tackle
functional programming (Erlang) and map-reduce. These three topics
(seemingly unconnected) have as common goal (or side-product, in some
cases) the efficien parallel computation on increasingly large data.
course will be 10 lessons (2 hours each) approx every 2 weeks, and will
be held in the Meeting Room of the Dipartimento di Informatica (Stecca
7, II piano).
