This is the website for the course ID1217 Concurrent Programming (Programmering av Parallella System).
The course treats the core concepts, models, paradigms and techniques for concurrent programming. This forms the basis for operating systems, distributed systems and multiprocessor systems, including multicore systems. The course studies foundations and principles of concurrent programming. It gives hands-on introductions to modern programming environments, such as pthreads, openMP, MPI, Java threads, concurrent utilities, sockets and RMI.
The overall aim of this course is provide the necessary knowledge in programming models, concepts, techniques, synchronization and communication mechanisms, and environments used in concurrent programming with threads and processes, i.e. in multithreaded, parallel and distributed programming. After completion of the course the student should have a good understanding of the problems and solution strategies of process-oriented programming.
