OpenMP is the de facto standard for writing parallel applications for shared memory computers. With multi-core processors in everything from laptops to high-end servers, the need for multithreaded applications is growing rapidly and OpenMP is often the most straightforward way to write such programs. We will cover the full standard emphasizing OpenMP 2.5 and briefly address the new features in OpenMP 3.0. NOTE: This will be a hands-on tutorial. We will have a few laptops to share, but we expect most students to use their own laptops (with Windows, Linux, or OS/X). We ask that students setup their laptops in advance by either purchasing an OpenMP compiler, acquiring a demo compiler, or by using an open source environment (see www.openmp.org for details).
