Book Description

With multicore processors now in every , , and embedded device, the need for cost-effective, reliable parallel has never been greater. By explaining key aspects of multicore programming, Fundamentals of Multicore helps software engineers understand parallel programming and master the multicore challenge.

Accessible to newcomers to the field, the book captures the state of the art of multicore programming in computer science. It covers the fundamentals of multicore hardware, parallel design patterns, and parallel programming in C++, .NET, and Java. It also discusses manycore on graphics cards and heterogeneous multicore platforms, automatic parallelization, automatic tuning, transactional memory, and emerging applications.

As computing power increasingly comes from parallelism, software developers must embrace parallel programming. Written by leaders in the field, this book provides an overview of the existing and up-and-coming programming choices for multicores. It addresses issues in systems architecture, operating systems, languages, and compilers.
