Web Based Parallel Programming Workshop for Undergraduate Education.
Marcus, Robert L.; Robertson, Douglass
Central State University (Ohio), under a contract with Nichols Research Corporation, has developed a World Wide web based workshop on high performance computing entitled "IBN SP2 Parallel Programming Workshop." The research is part of the DoD (Department of Defense) High Performance Computing Modernization Program. The research activities included developing techniques for converting classroom materials to Web presentations and algorithms in parallel programming techniques. Traditional classroom materials were prepared for Web presentations using the Accelerated Web Page System in the Scientific Visualization Center which used an optical character reader to scan printed material, and the Omnipage-Pro toolkit to produce HTML. The Internet Assistant software under Microsoft Office 97 was used for converting Microsoft Word documents to Web page files. The workshop material presents a series of sample programs on parallel programming using FORTRAN 90. It discusses topics on process synchronization, deadlock, data distribution, and load balancing. The workshop is designed for entrant level parallel programmers to make it suitable for undergraduate instructions and DoD applications. Basic algorithms on sorting, searching, statistical computations, numerical methods and linear systems are presented. The workshop is hosted on the Web server at Central State University and Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. The workshop was successfully field tested on undergraduate students at Central State University. (Author/AEF)
