OpenCL (English)

The aim of the book is to introduce the reader into the OpenCL technology. First
we give a short overview of OpenCL's history, then go through the elements of the OpenCL
API and demonstrate their usage with short sample codes. The OpenCL C language, used to
write the codes running on OpenCL supporting devices, is also described. After the overview
of the OpenCL specification, several case studies are discussed to demonstrate the usage of
OpenCL in practice. In the case studies the codes are optimized step-by-step to show the
reader how to write efficient code with OpenCL. In the last chapters the OpenCL extensions,
the interoperability of OpenCL and other technologies, and the closely related CUDA and
WebCL technologies are shortly discussed.
