This lecture provides an overview of programming techniques for scientific simulations. The focus is on basic and advanced C++ programming techniques and scientific software libraries. Based on an overview over the hardware components of PCs and supercomputer, optimization methods for scientific simulation codes are explained.
The goal of the course is that students learn basic and advanced programming techniques and scientific software libraries as used and applied for scientific simulations.
