Introduction to Programming with OpenMP
This talk introduces OpenMP, an increasingly popular and relatively simple shared memory parallel programming model. Two parallelizing schemes, parallel do loops and parallel sections, were detailed using examples. Various clauses that allow user to modify the parallel execution were also presented, including sharing and privatizing of the variables, scheduling, synchronization and mutual exclusion of the parallel tasks. Finally, few hints were given on removing loop dependencies in order to obtain effective parallelization.
