CSC 361: Optimized C++

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. Identify existing SISD (single instruction single data) implementation and refactor into SIMD (single instruction multiple data) to improve math centric software segments. Understand a system's dynamic memory usage to design and implement a custom high performance memory system. Topics include: performance enhancements through extended SIMD instuction set, dynamic memory usage, caching, implicit behavior, C++ language extensions, algorithms, streaming and profiling.

(CSC 301 or CSC 393) and CSC 373 are prerequisites for this class.
