In general, the GPU computing denotes computing over a GPU system consisting of a graphics processing unit (GPU) and a central processing unit (CPU). Such systems are aimed at accelerating the general purpose computations which considerably extends possible applications, making computationally demanding algorithms feasible in various areas of science and engineering practice. The general purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU) is a new computing method that can be viewed as an answer to the ever increasing demands on computing power. If problems are appropriately selected to fit well into the GPGPU environment, high advantages can be achieved. Therefore, in many areas, GPGPU is used to solve computationally demanding tasks. This chapter provides a brief overview of applications of GPUPU in several areas primarily related to signal processing, with the latter term understood in the general sense.
