Automation, Compilers, and Code-Generation
- Summer semester 2014
- CAMPUS #: 14ss-46578
Lectures: on Wednesdays, 5.15pm. Exact schedule to be decided.
Lectures begin: Wednesday, April 9th, 5.15pm
Rogowski 115 - AICES seminar room (Schinkelstrasse 2)
The topic for this semester is Automatic Code Generation.
The objective of this semester's seminar is to look closely into the process behind code generation, both in general purpose compilers and domain specific languages.
In regard to general purpose compilers (gcc, llvm, openCL, Cilk), we want to investigate their ability to automatically use vector instructions.
With respect to domain specific languages, we are interested in studying the techniques that are used in practice. A (non final and non exhaustive) list of test cases follows. Tensor Contraction Engine (TCE); the FFTW and Spiral projects for digital signal processing; BTO, Eigen, DxT and CLAK for linear algebra; the Fenics project for PDEs.
