CSC 461: Optimized C++

Analysis and implementation techniques to improve the performance and resource usage of C++ programs. This class will provide low level understanding of C++'s internal behavior that can be exploited to create faster performing software. Analysis of existing software to help identify and remedy execution performance issues related to data layout, processor caching, unintended compiler interactions, algorithmic considerations, data containers and supplied subsystems. Topics include: performance enhancements through SIMD instruction set, dynamic memory usage, caching, implicit behavior, C++ language extensions, algorithms, streaming and profiling.
