As part of my focus on software performance, I also support and consult on implementing scalable parallelism in applications.
The dust of SC’11 starts to settle and several announcements around OpenMP have been made in Seattle.
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
The N-Body problem is a classic example used frequently to demonstrate parallelization and how it improves performance.
Most modern threading platforms are already offering task based programming models.

Introduction to Threading in IPP
We continue developing our static analyzer VivaMP and now we would like to speak about diagnosing errors relating to using C++ exceptions in parallel regions.
