There will be no fixed textbook for the course, but we will point you to useful books, and material on the web. See below.
Instruction in the class will be in english, unless all the students are Icelandic. However we will maintain this webpage in english and the homework will be in english. Icelandic students can do their homework in icelandic.
There will be weekly homework and two larger projects. The larger projects can be done in groups of two. The second project will be followed by a presentation of the results by the students. The homeworks will account for 15% of the final grade. Each project will count 15% and the presentation 5%. Alltogether 50%. Thus the final exam will be worth 50% of the final grade.
The class meets on mondays at 15:00 in classroom V-137 and wednesdays at 13:20 in classroom Á-423 according to the latest timetables.
mpirun -mca btl ^openib -np 16 -npernode 4 -hostfile nodes mpitestwhere nodes is a file listing all the nodes on Jotunn, and mpitest is an MPI executable. Also note that "-np" inicates the number of processes asked for, and "-npernode" is the number of processes that should be started on each node. The nodes on Jotunn have two cores and each of them is hyperthreaded, so they can easily handle 4 processes per node.
