Author Peter Pacheco uses a tutorial approach to show students how to develop effective parallel programs with MPI, Pthreads, and OpenMP. The first undergraduate text to directly address compiling and running parallel programs on the new multi-core and cluster architecture, An Introduction to Parallel Programming explains how to design, debug, and evaluate the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs. User-friendly exercises teach students how to compile, run and modify example programs.



Key features:

  • Takes a tutorial approach, starting with small programming examples and building progressively to more challenging examples

  • Focuses on designing, debugging and evaluating the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs

  • Explains how to develop parallel programs using MPI, Pthreads, and OpenMP programming models
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    From the Back Cover:

    Learn how to fully harness the power of parallel computing using MPI, PThreads, and OpenMP.

    An Introduction to Parallel Programming

    Peter S. Pacheco, University of San Francisco

    With the coming of multicore processors and the cloud, parallel computing is most certainly not a niche area off in a corner of the computing world. Parallelism has become central to the efficient use of resources, and this new textbook by Peter Pacheco will go a long way toward introducing students early in their academic careers to both the art and practice of parallel computing.

    Duncan Buell Department of Computer Science and Engineering University of South Carolina

    An Introduction to Parallel Programming illustrates fundamental programming principles in the increasingly important area of shared memory programming using Pthreads and OpenMP and distributed memory programming using MPI. More importantly, it emphasizes good programming practices by indicating potential performance pitfalls. These topics are presented in the context of a variety of disciplines including computer science, physics and mathematics. The chapters include numerous programming exercises that range from easy to very challenging. This is an ideal book for students or professionals looking to learn parallel programming skills or to refresh their knowledge.

    Leigh Little Department of Computational Science The College at Brockport, The State University of New York

    An Introduction to Parallel Programming is a well written, comprehensive book on the field of parallel computing. Students and practitioners alike will appreciate the relevant, up-to-date information. Peter Pacheco’s very accessible writing style combined with numerous interesting examples keeps the reader’s attention. In a field that races forward at a dizzying pace, this book hangs on for the wild ride covering the ins and outs of parallel hardware and software.

    Kathy J. Liszka Department of Computer Science University of Akron

    Parallel computing is the future and this book really helps introduce this complicated subject with practical and useful examples.

    Andrew N. Sloss FBCS Consultant Engineer, ARM Author of ARM System Developer’s Guide

    Parallel programming is no longer just for specialists. If you want to fully exploit the power of clusters and multicore processors, it's essential that you learn the basics of distributed- and shared-memory parallel programming. An Introduction to Parallel Programming uses a tutorial approach to show you how to develop effective parallel programs with MPI, PThreads, and OpenMP. Whether you are a student or a practicing professional, Peter Pacheco’s new book will show you how to design, debug, and evaluate the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs.

    Features

    • Features a tutorial approach, starting with small programming examples and building progressively to more challenging examples
    • Focuses on designing, debugging and evaluating the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs
    • Stresses hands-on development of parallel programs, using MPI, PThreads, and OpenMP programming models

    About the Author

    Peter S. Pacheco Professor Computer Science and Mathematics University of San Francisco

    About the Author:

    Peter Pacheco received a PhD in mathematics from Florida State University. After

    completing graduate school, he became one of the first professors in UCLA’s “Program

    in Computing, which teaches basic computer science to students at the College

    of Letters and Sciences there. Since leaving UCLA, he has been on the faculty of

    the University of San Francisco. At USF Peter has served as chair of the computer

    science department and is currently chair of the mathematics department.

    His research is in parallel scientific computing. He has worked on the development

    of parallel software for circuit simulation, speech recognition, and the simulation

    of large networks of biologically accurate neurons. Peter has been teaching

    parallel computing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for nearly twenty

    years. He is the author of Parallel Programming with MPI, published by Morgan

    Kaufmann Publishers.
