Graduate Intern at Intel - Parallel Ray-Tracing

Ray-tracing is a classic example of an embarrassingly parallel algorithm; since each pixel is typically independent of the rest, theoretically every pixel can be done in parallel (given enough core

Hybrid Parallelism: A MiniFE* Case Study

This case study examines the situation where the problem decomposition is the same for threading as it is for Message Passing Interface* (MPI); that is, the threading parallelism is elevated to the same level as MPI parallelism.
