Toth And Students Publish Paper

Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Dave Toth, and his students Zach Goodywyn and Jerome Mueller published a paper on the research they conducted during this year’s UMW Summer Science Program.  The paper compares the performance of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor and an NVIDIA K20c GPU.  Prof. Toth also presented the work at the PDCN conference in Austria last week.

Toth and Student Publish in Journal of Computational Science Education

Dave Toth, assistant professor of computer science, and Mike Crawford, a student in Toth’s parallel computing class last fall, published a paper in the Journal of Computational Science Education. The paper, “Parallelization of the Knapsack Problem as an Introductory Experience in Parallel Computing,” describes both Crawford’s and Toth’s experiences with and reflections about the eight-week course project. The project included each student in the course writing a parallel program and running it on one of the 50 fastest supercomputers in the world.
