AUTHORS: Kaminsky, Alan - ©2010
Learn how to design and build parallel programs, including programs that employ multiple processors running at once to solve a large computational problem, with the clear presentation found in BUILDING PARALLEL PROGRAMS. Written by experienced instructor and industry developer Alan Kaminsky, this book explores techniques for parallel programming on both major categories of parallel computers: SMPs and clusters. You gain valuable first-hand experience in working with the increasingly popular programming language, Java, as you complete programs from the text and work with a special Java class library, ideal for first-time parallel programmers. The author even teaches you how to effectively use performance metrics to design solid parallel programs, which is not addressed in most other books. Perfect the contemporary skills and gain the understanding you need for success in parallel programming with Kaminsky's BUILDING PARALLEL PROGRAMS today.
