OpenMP is the de facto standard for shared memory programming in a scientific context. Using annotations, the C/C++/Fortran programmer can parallelize his code step by step. However, to obtain efficient code, it is mandatory to have a thorough understanding of the features and pitfalls of OpenMP.This course deals with those in detail. This course covers the OpenMP 3.1 standard, and gives an overview of the new features in OpenMP 4.0.

  • Overview and execution model
  • Work sharing directives
  • Data environment
  • Pitfalls
  • Verification of OpenMP applications
  • OpenMP 4.0 overview
This course is based on a PATC course developed
