Parallel Computing Concepts
This concept module will introduce a core of parallel computing notions that CS majors and minors should know in preparation for the era of manycore computing, including parallelism categories, concurrency issues and solutions, and programming strategies.
Concurrent Access to Data Structures
Professor Libby Shoop, Macalester College
This module enables students to experiment with creating a task-parallel solution to the problem of crawling the web by using Java threads and thread-safe data structures available in the java.util.concurrent package.
Map-reduce Computing for Introductory Students using WebMapReduce
Professor Richard Brown, St. Olaf College Professor Libby Shoop, Macalester College
This module emphasizes data-parallel problems and solutions, the so-called 'embarrassingly parallel' problems where processing of input data can easily be split among several parallel processes. Students use a web application called WebMapReduce (WMR) to write map and reduce functions that operate on portions of a massive dataset in parallel.
