Om utbildningen

The course introduces the principles and practice of parallel programming in a functional programming language.

this course, the term parallel programming means using multiple
hardware cores or processors in order to gain speed. Functional
programming is one of the most promising approaches to the problem of
how to program in parallel, as the computers around us inevitably become
more and more parallel.
The course covers approaches to parallel
functional programming in both Haskell and Erlang. It covers current
research on these topics, and relies heavily on scientific papers as its
source materials. However, we stress that the emphasis in the course is
practical, rather than theoretical. Several of the lectures are given
by leading external experts from both academia and industry.
