With multi-core processors replacing traditional processors and the movement to multiprocessor workstations and servers, parallel computing has moved from a specialty area to the core of computer science. In order to provide efficient and cost-effective solutions to problems, algorithms must be designed for multiprocessor systems. Algorithms Sequential and Parallel: A Unified Approach 2/E provides a state-of-the-art approach to an algorithms course. The book considers algorithms, paradigms, and the analysis of solutions to critical problems for sequential and parallel models of computation in a unified fashion. This gives practicing engineers and scientists, undergraduates, and beginning graduate students a background in algorithms for sequential and parallel algorithms within one text. Prerequisites include fundamentals of data structures, discrete mathematics, and calculus.
