7. Tasking and Synchronization
8. Loops and Tasks
10. Task Scheduling
11. Non-Uniform Memory Access


This video shows the concept of OpenMP worksharing, loop scheduling and synchronization mechanisms. After this tutorial session the programmer already has knowledge about the most common used OpenMP constructs and API functions. How the scoping of data is controlled is introduced in the part on Data Scoping.
