In this article I am going to discuss how to install the Nvidia CUDA toolkit for carrying out high-performance computing (HPC) with an Nvidia Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). CUDA is the industry standard for working with GPU-HPC. In a previous article Valerio Restocchi showed us how to install Nvidia CUDA on a Mac OS X system. In this article I am going to describe the same procedure but carry it out under the latest version of Ubuntu, namely 14.04. Read more...
It's been a while since we've considered the event-driven backtester, which we began discussing in this article. In Part VI I described how to code a stand-in

It is one of the best "out of the box" supervised classification techniques. As such, it is an important tool for both the quantitative trading researcher and data scientist. Read more...
In my previous article I explained how to install CUDA on OS X. Now it's time to start coding. However, I don't want to merely show you some piece of "ready-made" code. I would also like to also explain to you the basic concepts behind parallel programming and, specifically, GPU programming. Hence, in this article and in the following ones, I will pair some key theory with code examples. Read more...
This is the first article in a series that I will write about on the topic of parallel programming and CUDA. In this guide I will explain how to install CUDA 6.0 for Mac OS X.
