Graphics Processing Units (GPU) have impressively arisen as general-purpose coprocessors in high performance computing applications, since the launch of the Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). However, they present an inherent performance bottleneck in the fact that communication between two separate address spaces (the main memory of the CPU and(More)
GPU application implementations using scatter approaches will fall into write contention due to atomic updates of output elements, if these result from more than one input element. Colliding threads will be serialized, seriously harming performance. Dealing with these issues requires a proper understanding of the behavior of the scratchpad or shared memory(More)
A histogram is a compact representation of the distribution of data in an image with a full range of applications in diverse fields. Histogram generation is an inherently sequential operation where every pixel votes in a reduced set of bins. This makes finding efficient parallel implementations very desirable but challenging, because on graphics processing(More)
Matrix transposition is an important algorithmic building block for many numeric algorithms such as FFT. It has also been used to convert the storage layout of arrays. With more and more algebra libraries offloaded to GPUs, a high performance in-place transposition becomes necessary. Intuitively, in-place transposition should be a good fit for GPU(More)
