This class provides intermediate users with and overview of intermediate and advanced techniques for using Python on HPC environments. The lecture will emphasize well known approaches for improving the performance of their Python codes. The lecture will include an overview of when Python can be used on HPC, an overview of numpy, matplotlib, SciPy and Cython, as well as an introduction to the most common functionality of mpi4py.

Previous knowledge of Python is required since the course will not go into specific details of Python syntax. Some knowledge of MPI is required as the lecture will not go into specific details regarding MPI. Some familiarity with C/C++ is also recommended for Cython.

The labs will be available for remote users. However, we will not be able to assist remote users with problems during the lab. Remote users are invited to submit their questions via email.
