The Portable Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computing (PETSc) provides a framework for the development of computational science codes. Its focus is on solving linear and nonlinear systems, but it is more than a collection of algorithms: it is a complete toolkit supporting parallel data structures, linear algebra, PDEs, meshes. PETSc is designed for scalable parallelism and contains debugging and profiling support. This course will discuss the basic PETSc objects and how they make up a PETSc code. Upon completion of this course, you should be able to independently develop scalable scientific simulation codes with the PETSc library. 

Time & Date: Friday, February 4th, 2022; 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST [break 12:00 - 1:00] 1:00-4:00

High Performance Computing on Frontera Training 7, 14 & 21 October 2021

Registration is now open for TACC's fall HPC training on Frontera. High Performance Computing on Frontera is a three-day training series offered on consecutive Thursdays starting October 7. Registrants for this event are encouraged to attend all three days.

During the first day (October 7), we focus on parallel programming with MPI. We provide an introduction to MPI in the morning and delve into advanced topics in the afternoon. We also discuss hybrid computing and the interplay between OpenMP and MPI with a single code.

On the second day (October 14), the focus shifts to OpenMP, again covering an introduction and some intermediate topics.

On the last day (October 21), we intend to cover Parallel I/O, the use of containers on TACC large-scale systems, and the use of Remora.
