prime, a Python code which counts the number of primes between 1 and N, and is intended as a starting point for a parallel version.
The algorithm is completely naive. For each integer I, it simply checks whether any smaller J evenly divides it. The total amount of work for a given N is thus roughly proportional to 1/2*N^2.

prime is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
fire_serial, a Python code which simulates a forest fire over a rectangular array of trees, starting at a single random location. It is intended as a starting point for the development of a parallel version.
prime_mpi, a Python code which counts the number of primes between 1 and N, using MPI for parallel execution.
quad_serial, a Python code which approximates an integral using a quadrature rule, and is intended as a starting point for parallelization exercises.
search_serial, a Python code which searches integers between A and B for a value J such that F(J) = C, intended as a starting point for the creation of a parallel version.
