About this class
Overview and goal
The goal of this class is to learn fundamental programming techniques with Fortran and C and to acquire knowledge needed to simulate physical phenomena such as wave motion or diffusion. To deepen the understanding, students participate in practical training and use supercomputers at Academic Center for Computing and Media Studies in addition to classroom lectures. The topic of final report in practical training is differential analysis of Poisson’s equation, which is an object of simulation in a lot of applied fields. After students acquire fundamental skills of programming techniques, instructors give a lecture on the outline of hardware and software of supercomputers and the summary of advanced simulation programming based on parallel processing technology and high-performance computation technology.
This class is offered in cooperation with Graduate School of Informatics and Center for Promotion of Informatics Education.
