Introduction to Parallel Computing

Book Description

The constantly increasing demand for more power can seem impossible to keep up with. However, multicore processors capable of performing computations in allow computers to tackle ever larger problems in a wide variety of applications. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to , discussing theoretical issues such as the fundamentals of concurrent processes, of parallel and distributed computing, and metrics for evaluating and comparing parallel , as well as practical issues, including methods of designing and implementing shared- and distributed-memory programs, and standards for parallel program implementation, in particular and interfaces. Each chapter presents the basics in one place followed by advanced topics, allowing novices and experienced practitioners to quickly find what they need. A glossary and more than 80 exercises with selected solutions aid comprehension. The book is recommended as a text for advanced undergraduate or graduate students and as a reference for practitioners.
