Title: Parallelization of the SINCO algorithm
Keywords: SINCO, OpenMP, parallelization, algorithm

Abstract: Sparse inverse covariance selection problem is encountered in many practical applications. SINCO is an algorithm for the Sparse INverse COvariance problem. The main advantage of this algorithm is the simplicity of its implementation and his parallelizing potential. The algorithm is parallelized using OpenMP, the speedup is measured and the results are analyzed.
