Introduction to HPC with MPI for Data Science
This gentle introduction to High Performance Computing (HPC) for Data
Science using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard has been
designed as a first course for undergraduates on parallel programming on
distributed memory models, and requires only basic programming notions.
into two parts the first part covers high performance computing using
C++ with the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard followed by a
second part providing high-performance data analytics on computer
In the first part, the fundamental notions of blocking
versus non-blocking point-to-point communications, global communications
(like broadcast or scatter) and collaborative computations (reduce),
with Amdalh and Gustafson speed-up laws are described before addressing
parallel sorting and parallel linear algebra on computer clusters. The
common ring, torus and hypercube topologies of clusters are then
explained and global communication procedures on these topologies are
studied. This first part closes with the MapReduce (MR) model of
computation well-suited to processing big data using the MPI framework.
the second part, the book focuses on high-performance data analytics.
Flat and hierarchical clustering algorithms are introduced for data
exploration along with how to program these algorithms on computer
clusters, followed by machine learning classification, and an
introduction to graph analytics. This part closes with a concise
introduction to data core-sets that let big data problems be amenable to
tiny data problems.
Exercises are included at the end of each
chapter in order for students to practice the concepts learned, and a
final section contains an overall exam which allows them to evaluate how
well they have assimilated the material covered in the book.
