Improving the performance software applications is a constant challenge for software developers in the financial services industry. This webinar provides an overview of how to accelerate these computations, especially Monte Carlo and Black-Scholes, using a combination of the new Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor and the Intel® Parallel Studio XE suite of software development tools. Areas explored include performance analysis, threading, vectorization, math library usage and compiler optimization.

What can you do if you suspect that you have memory violations on the stack?
Stack memory issues are usually not a problem for most users, so the Intel Inspector XE does not enable this expensive functionality by default. However, if you need to check for these issues, you can use a custom analysis to enable this functionality.
Consider the following code where all local variables in a function are created in stack and go out of scope when the function returns. So you would expect to see a memory issue.
