-ViennaCL has three computing backends: One based on CUDA, one based on OpenCL, and one based on OpenMP. While the CUDA and OpenCL backends provide high performance,​ this is not yet the case with the OpenMP backend. Although the OpenMP-backend was initially introduced as a fall-back mechanism for CPU-only systems, it is now mature enough to be tuned for high performance. The student will tune the individual linear algebra kernels (vector operations, matrix-vector products, etc.) for best performance.+Our free open source linear algebra library [[http://​viennacl.sourceforge.net|ViennaCL]] has three computing backends: One based on [[http://​www.nvidia.com/​object/​cuda_home_new.html|CUDA]], one based on [[https://​www.khronos.org/​opencl/​|OpenCL]], and one based on [[http://​openmp.org/​|OpenMP]].
