I'm interested in profiling and parallelizing an algorithm that finds the average value of an array of integral values. Although it might not sound exciting to some, I think it's a great starting point.
Feb 6: I created a program that does what I specified. I profiled it, and the profile showed that my application spends most of its time in the init_and_avg() function. That function has a loop that can be parallelized because each iteration is independent.
Find open source tomography algorithm, profile it, then attempt to convert parts of source code to take advantage of GPU using CUDA.
Im looking at fractal maps right now. Julia and Mandelbrot set. Im trying to figure out how to do the Julia set because last semester, one of the assignment is for Mandelbrot Set.
