The first 4 problem sets involve solving a range of PDE applications, using
PDE2D, which will be made available to you.
Book references in these problems are to the Edsberg book.

The last 3 problem sets, involving parallelizing linear algebra Fortran90
codes using MPI, are taken from Chapter 6 of the Sewell book. We will
occasionally also have guest lecturers to discuss other topics such as
computer visualization. (See Chris Sewell's slides on Visualization and Data
Analysis for HPC here, and see Vladik Kreinovich's paper
on interval computations here. )
