Tutorial Details: Use of MATLAB Parallel Computing Toolbox

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2011, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

The Parallel Computing Toolbox software extends the MATLAB language with high-level parallel processing constructs such as parallel for-loops, distributed arrays, parallel numerical algorithms, and message-passing functions that let you exploit data and task parallelism in your applications.

This tutorial will teach MSI's users to convert serial MATLAB programs to parallel MATLAB programs and to use the built-in functions.

This tutorial consists of two parts:

1) One-hour lecture to describe the MATLAB functions

2) An optional one-hour, hands-on session focusing on the use of the Parallel Computing Toolbox

Prerequisites: Knowledge of MATLAB programming and parallel computing
