Hi, everybody.

I’m a high school senior really interested in CUDA programming. I was supposed to do some research last year with CUDA and linear algebra, but my mentor couldn’t actually do it in the end. I ended up reading a lot, but not putting much to practice. Right now, I’m looking for someone experienced to give me some advice and guidelines. Is anybody experienced interested in helping me?

For a start, I’d like to code an effective solution for solving a linear system. As far as I know, CUBLAS can solve a system if it’s given in the echelon form, correct? Well, for some of my first work, how difficult would it be to compute the echelon form? Has anybody tried doing it? I’ve read some of Volkov’s papers, but it’s way too advanced for me right now. I need some introduction to it.

If anybody is interested in working in this area, I’d gladly exchange emails. I’m really interested in working with university students, but if someone with higher education would like to help me a little bit, it would be greatly appreciated. However, I guess someone with a PhD doesn’t have time for this :), so if anyone can help me, please write either here or ask me for email. I am really interested in solving linear algebra problems with CUDA. However, I need someone to help me around, introduce me to concepts or at least just recommend me good books (both in linear algebra and CUDA/parallel programming).

Thank you so much in advance.
