This Lecture considers the topic of parallel computer architecture. It primarily focuses on the design principles of parallel computer architecture but covers some aspects of programming for parallel computer architecture.

The lecture considers the following topics:

  • Instruction
  • Level Parallelism: Superscalar Architectures, Speculative Execution, VLIW Architectures
  • Multicore-/Multiprocessor-Architectures
  • Caches in Shared Memory Architectures. Cache-Coherency
  • Shared Memory Architectures and Synchronisation
  • Quantitative Principles of Computer Architectures
  • Parallel Programming Models
  • Interconnection Networks (Topology, Switching, Routing)
  • Domain-specific Architectures and GPGPUs
  • Case Studies
