OpenMP is a standard compiler extension for parallel programming on shared memory systems. OpenMP has become the de facto industry standard parallel solution on shared-memory machines. It makes implicit use of the multi-core nature of modern cluster nodes. This webinar will introduce the shared-memory model, OpenMP compiler directives, as well as SHARCNET environment for OpenMP. It is targeted for users who wish to convert an existing serial code to multi-threading parallel code in order to speed up their computations on modern multi-core computers.
