Introduction

The Advanced Scientific Computing course, B673, will cover selected topics related to scientific computing that are perhaps rightly considered advanced. Whereas in the previous course, Scientific Computing, P573, we have covered quite a broad range of tools and techniques, most of them quite easy to master, in this course we'll concentrate on a smaller number of somewhat more difficult topics.

The five major topics that we're going to focus on will be

1.
linear algebra and fast Fourier transform packages and algorithms,
2.
Message Passing Interface (MPI) and parallel I/O (MPI/IO),
3.
3D visualisation of scientific data sets,
4.
implementation and architecture of problem solving environments: octave and calc,
5.
quantum computing.

This is a multidisciplinary course. It is addressed to graduate students from various schools who need to develop and use advanced computational techniques in their research.
