This course is aimed at reducing your struggle in getting started with computational projects, and make you a more efficient computational scientist. Topics include well-established best practices for developing software as it applies to scientific computations, common numerical techniques and packages, and aspects of high performance computing. While we will introduce the C++ language, in one language or another, students should already have some programming experience.Despite the title, this course is suitable for many physical scientists (chemists, astronomers, ...).

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered: Parallelism and Memory Models -- AJ Guillon (Yetiware Inc.)Without a well-defined memory model, the correct execution of a parallel program is reduced to superstition and luck. The development of modern memory models required a major industry effort that spanned computer processor architects, compiler teams, and language designers to produce the models of C++11 and OpenCL 2.0. The final result is so bewildering that only a few experts truly understand it, let alone how to use it. This talk will explain why this effort was required, why the final result is so hard to understand, and what's next.This meeting includes: pizza, user discussion, and a techtalk (TBD).
