SF2565/SF3565, Program construction in C++ for Scientific Computing, 7,5 ECTS
The course will be given at KTH during the academic year
2017/2018. The first lecture is
Actual course edition: pcpp19.
General DescriptionWith the increasing complexity of the software used in Computational Science and Engineering, the requirements on efficiency both in the execution on a given hardware as well as the software development cycle have had a big impact on the tools used in implementing simulation software. As far as the programming languages are concerned, only a few have reached broader application. In particular, C++ plays an important role. Being a general-purpose object-oriented programming language, some care has to be taken when using it for high-performance computations. The aim of the course consists of providing knowledge how advanced numerical methods and complex algorithms in Scientific Computing can be implemented in C++.
Naturally, a considerable portion of the course is spent in hands-on exercises and project work.
