This unique book provides comprehensive coverage of the crucial fundamental concepts of parallel processing. The authors also introduce the integration of parallel architecture, algorithms, and language to provide insight into designing and implementing parallel applications. This book is suitable for advanced courses on the principles of parallel processing and is also a superb professional reference. Beneficial Features:
  • Presents subjects by integrating algorithms, languages, and architectures.
  • Clearly explains performance analysis and implications resulting from influences of the three components.
  • Guides readers with thought-provoking questions at the beginning of each chapter.
  • A Offers numerous examples to clarify difficult concepts.
  • Helps students implement their learning with 141 end-of-chapter problems.
  • A Conveys performance implications of each new topic with consistent integration of algorithms, languages, and architectures throughout the text.
