Do we have to teach HPC/Parallel coding?
- Do we have to teach HPC/Parallel coding in a first course?
- I think YES if its a single graduate course.
- Perhaps not a lot of detail, but just like I think one homework in MATHEMATICA is important, breaking the barrier to parallel coding is important.
- Lets face it - much Computational Physics today is using codes like LAMMPS - students should at least be comfortable using them on parallel machines.
