Structured Parallel Programming: Patterns for Efficient Computation

Book Description

Programming is now programming. Much as structured programming revolutionized traditional serial programming decades ago, a new kind of structured programming, based on patterns, is relevant to programming today. computing experts and industry insiders Michael McCool, Arch Robison, and James Reinders describe how to and implement maintainable and efficient using a pattern-based approach. They present both theory and practice, and give detailed concrete examples using multiple programming . Examples are primarily given using two of the most popular and cutting edge programming for parallel programming: Threading Building Blocks, and Cilk Plus. These -independent models enable easy integration into existing applications, preserve investments in existing , and speed the development of parallel applications. Examples from realistic contexts illustrate patterns and themes in parallel algorithm design that are widely applicable regardless of implementation technology.

  • The patterns-based approach offers structure and insight that developers can apply to a variety of parallel programming models
  • Develops a composable, structured, scalable, and machine-independent approach to parallel computing
  • Includes detailed examples in both Cilk Plus and the latest Threading Building Blocks, which support a wide variety of computers
