Objectives
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
THE STUDENTS WILL LEARN THE PRINCIPLES AND THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED ALGORITHMS AND SYSTEMS AS WELL AS THE USE OF A TOOL THAT ALLOWS THEM DIRECT EXPERIMENTATION.
IN PARTICULAR, THE STUDENT WILL ACQUIRE THE KNOWLEDGE ON THE ANALYSIS AND THE COMPLEXITY OF PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED ALGORITHMS. WILL STUDY LOWER BOUNDS AND PROBLEMS HARDLY PARALLELIZABLE. HE WILL ALSO ACQUIRE THE ABILITY TO EVALUATE THE PERFORMANCE OF PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED ARCHITECTURE.
THE STUDENTS WILL LEARN THE BASIC CONCEPTS THAT CHARACTERIZE P2P, GRID AND CLOUD SYSTEMS. SOME OF THEM WILL BE ANALYZED IN DETAIL. THE PERFORMANCE OF DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS WILL BE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF SPEED PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY, FAULT TOLERANCE AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY.

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
THE STUDENT WILL ACQUIRE THE FOLLOWING APPLICATION CAPABILITIES:
- DESIGN A DISTRIBUTED SYSTEM USING THE JXTA LIBRARIES.
- EXPERIMENT THE CONNECTION AND EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION, IN SEVERAL COMMUNICATION MODELS (P2P, GRIDS, CLOUDS), BETWEEN DEVICES OF DIFFERENT TYPES, INCLUDING MOBILE PHONES, PDAS, PCS, SERVERS,..
