The Graphics Processing Unit or GPU is nowadays a mainstream component in Scientific Computing. For relatively little money one can have supercomputer performance. However, some extra work has to be done to make an ordinary sequential program suitable for use on the GPU.
One of the most important tools for using GPUs is currently "CUDA" (Compute Unified Device Architecture). This is basically an extension to the C programming language, which can be used to program the GPU in an easy way. Another tool is OpenCL, but this is less mature than CUDA and performs less on especially the newest GPUs, the focus will be currently on CUDA.
