CUDA Parallel Merge Sort

This work was part of a final project for Programming Languages. The CUDA API was investigated and used to write a parallel merge sort algorithm that executes on the Graphics Processing Unit(GPU), through a technique called GPGPU. GPGPU stand for General Purpose computing on a GPU. GPGPU allows for the GPU to be used as a co-processor for computationally intense tasks.
