A step-by-step guide that will enhance your skills in creating powerful systems to solve complex issues
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book targets hobbyists and enthusiasts who want to explore building supercomputers with microcomputers. Researchers will also find this book useful. Prior programming knowledge is necessary; knowledge of supercomputers is not.
What You Will Learn
Author Carlos R. Morrison (Staff Scientist, NASA) will empower the uninitiated reader to quickly assemble and operate a Pi3 supercomputer in the shortest possible time. The lifeblood of a supercomputer, the MPI code, is introduced early, and sample MPI code provides additional practice opportunities for you to test the effectiveness of your creation. You will learn how to configure various nodes and switches so that they can effectively communicate with each other. By the end of this book, you will have successfully built a supercomputer and the various applications related to it.
Style and approach
A progressive guide that will start off with serial coding and MPI concepts, moving towards configuring a complete supercluster, and solving real world problems
