Book Description
The field of parallel scientific computing lies at the crossroads of a number of disciplines and skill sets, and correspondingly, for someone to be successful at using parallel computing in science requires at least elementary knowledge of and skills in all these areas.
This is a textbook that teaches the bridging topics between numerical analysis, parallel computing, code performance, large scale applications.
Designed for undergraduates, it assumes a basic knowledge of numerical computation and proficiency in Fortran or C programming and can be used in any science, computer science, applied mathematics, or engineering department or by practicing scientists and engineers, especially those associated with one of the national laboratories or supercomputer centers.
The contents of this book is a combination of theoretical material and selfguided tutorials on various practical skills. The theory chapters have exercises that can be assigned in a classroom, however, their placement in the text is such that a reader not inclined to do exercises can simply take them as statement of fact.
