9780131918658: Parallel Programming: Techniques and Applications Using Networked Workstations and Parallel Computers

Designed for undergraduate/graduate-level parallel programming courses.

This nontheoretical, highly accessible text—which is linked to real parallel programming software—covers the techniques of parallel programming in a practical manner that enables students to write and evaluate their parallel programs. Supported by the National Science Foundation and exhaustively class-tested, it is the first text of its kind that does not require access to a special multiprocessor system, concentrating instead only on parallel programs that can be executed on networked workstations using freely available parallel software tools. The Second Edition has been revised to incorporate a greater focus on cluster programming as this type of programming has become more widespread with the availability of low-cost computers.

Designed for an undergraduate computer science student or professional, this accessible text covers the techniques of parallel programming in a practical manner that enables students to write and evaluate their parallel programs. Supported by the National Science Foundation and exhaustively class-tested, it is the first text of its kind that does not require access to a special multiprocessor system, concentrating instead on parallel programs that can be executed on networked workstations using freely available parallel software tools.

Key Features:

  • Introduces parallel programming techniques as a natural extension to sequential programming, developing the basic techniques of message-passing parallel programming, and then studying problem-specific algorithms in both non-numeric and numeric domains.
  • Requires no prerequisite in parallel programming; assumes only C programming knowledge.
  • Uses MPI and PVM pseudocodes to describe algorithms and allows different programming tools to be implemented.
  • Provides students with thorough coverage of shared memory programming and Pthreads to assist them in shared memory programming assignments.
  • Explores such applications as numerical algorithms, image processing, searching, and optimization.

About the Author:

BARRY WILKINSON and MICHAEL ALLEN have created a comprehensive instructors support website, including examples, assignments, and instructional materials for using the MPI and PVM software. The materials include extensive web pages to help students learn how to compile and run parallel programs as well as sample programs.
