    • Since we will do massively parallel programming with GPUs, some resources:
      • My CS 239 (parallel programming) class page is here.
      • Check good and easy to follow videos from Udacity in Youtube, regarding theory and implementation of parallel programming. Since we will implement (parallel) sorting networks later on, a good starting video is here.
    • Set 5 readings:
    • Set 6:
    • A uniform solution to integer factorization using time-free spiking neural P system, Xiangrong Liu, Ziming Li, Juan Suo, Juan Liu, Xiaoping Min. Neural Computing and Applications July 2015, Volume 26, Issue 5, pp 1241-1247
