This tutorial will provide an overview of the concepts of parallel
computing. Topics
to be discussed comprise parallel programming models and computer
architectures,
including multicore architectures, as well as various issues that need to be
considered when designing parallel programs. Several examples of parallel
solvers
will be presented to illustrate the challenges that need to be overcome to
achieve
an efficient implementation.
