Book Description

This book introduces the parallel paradigm, and shows how parallel programming is carried out using a variety of programming languages. Foster details actual applications examples from engineering, science, and finance while keeping the focus throughout on parallel programming as opposed to algorithm development.

At last, a practitioner's guide to parallel programming! Students and professionals who use parallel or distributed computer systems will be able to solve real problems with Designing and Building Parallel Programs.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to parallel algorithm design, performance analysis, and program construction. It describes the tools needed to write parallel programs and provides numerous examples.

A unique feature is the companion on-line version, accessible via the World Wide Web using browsers such as Mosaic. This provides a convenient hypertext version of the text with pointers to programming tools, example programs, and other resources on parallel and distributed computing.
