Canonical citation reference for CUDA

Hi all,

I’m working on a paper about using GPUs for doing astrophysics simulations. I’ll be referencing CUDA and was wondering what the canonical citation is for CUDA for the bibliography. I’ve seen some people reference different editions of CUDA instructional books, but that doesn’t seem right to me. Is there some standard paper from NVIDIA that we should be using?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.


The following paper is frequently cited (whether that makes it a “canonical” reference I do not know):

John Nickolls, Ian Buck, Michael Garland, Kevin Skadron
Scalable Parallel Programming with CUDA
ACM Queue, vol. 6 no. 2, March/April 2008, pp. 40–53

Works for me! Thanks!
