OpenMP is the de facto standard for writing parallel applications for shared memory computers. With multi-core processors in everything from tablets to high-end servers, the need for multithreaded applications is growing and OpenMP is one of the most straightforward ways to write such programs. In this tutorial, we will cover the core features of the OpenMP 3.1 standard. This will be a hands-on tutorial. We expect students to use their own laptops (with Windows, Linux, or OS/X). We will have access to systems with OpenMP (a remote SMP server), but the best option is for students to load an OpenMP compiler onto their laptops before the tutorial.
