This Monday, March 16th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to enjoy Orna Agmon 
Ben-Yehuda's talk about

      Introduction to openmp


(Orna hasn't submitted an abstract... I'll improvise)

This meeting will be an introduction to OpenMP API, which is a 
preparation lecture for "openmp - from the developer's side", coming up 
next. If time allows (it never does, but anyhow) the beginning of the 
latter lecture will be delivered on this Monday as well.

So what is OpenMP? Wikipedia says:

The OpenMP (Open Multi-Processing) is an application programming 
interface (API) that supports multi-platform shared memory 
multiprocessing programming in C, C++ and Fortran on many architectures, 
including Unix and Microsoft Windows platforms. It consists of a set of 
compiler directives, library routines, and environment variables that 
influence run-time behavior.

Jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware and software 
vendors, OpenMP is a portable, scalable model that gives programmers a 
simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for 
platforms ranging from the desktop to the supercomputer.

An application built with the hybrid model of parallel programming can 
run on a computer cluster using both OpenMP and Message Passing 
Interface (MPI).
