9780123849885: GPU Computing Gems Emerald Edition (Applications of GPU Computing Series)

GPU Computing Gems Emerald Edition offers practical techniques in parallel computing using graphics processing units (GPUs) to enhance scientific research. The first volume in Morgan Kaufmann's Applications of GPU Computing Series, this book offers the latest insights and research in computer vision, electronic design automation, and emerging data-intensive applications. It also covers life sciences, medical imaging, ray tracing and rendering, scientific simulation, signal and audio processing, statistical modeling, video and image processing.

This book is intended to help those who are facing the challenge of programming systems to effectively use GPUs to achieve efficiency and performance goals. It offers developers a window into diverse application areas, and the opportunity to gain insights from others' algorithm work that they may apply to their own projects. Readers will learn from the leading researchers in parallel programming, who have gathered their solutions and experience in one volume under the guidance of expert area editors. Each chapter is written to be accessible to researchers from other domains, allowing knowledge to cross-pollinate across the GPU spectrum. Many examples leverage NVIDIA's CUDA parallel computing architecture, the most widely-adopted massively parallel programming solution. The insights and ideas as well as practical hands-on skills in the book can be immediately put to use.

Computer programmers, software engineers, hardware engineers, and computer science students will find this volume a helpful resource. For useful source codes discussed throughout the book, the editors invite readers to the following website:

  • Covers the breadth of industry from scientific simulation and electronic design automation to audio / video processing, medical imaging, computer vision, and more
  • Many examples leverage NVIDIA's CUDA parallel computing architecture, the most widely-adopted massively parallel programming solution
  • Offers insights and ideas as well as practical "hands-on" skills you can immediately put to use

From the Back Cover:

Practical techniques straight from the leading minds in general purpose GPU research.

"...the perfect companion to Programming Massively Parallel Processors by Hwu & Kirk."--Nicolas Pinto, Research Scientist at Harvard & MIT, NVIDIA Fellow 2009-2010

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are designed to be parallel having hundreds of cores versus traditional CPUs. Increasingly, you can leverage GPU power for many computationally-intense applications not just for graphics. If you're facing the challenge of programming systems to effectively use these massively parallel processors to achieve efficiencyandperformance goals,GPU Computing Gemsprovides a wealth of tested, proven GPU techniques.

Different application domains often pose similar algorithm problems, and researchers from diverse application domains often develop similar algorithmic strategies.GPU Computing Gemsoffers developers a window into diverse application areas, and the opportunity to gain insights from others' algorithm work that they may apply to their own projects.

Learn from the leading researchers in parallel programming, who have gathered their solutions and experience in one volume under the guidance of expert area editors. Each chapter is written to be accessible to researchers from other domains, allowing knowledge to cross-pollinate across the GPU spectrum.

GPU Computing Gems: Emerald Editionis the first volume in Morgan Kaufmann'sApplications of GPU Computing Series, offering the latest insights and research in computer vision, electronic design automation, emerging data-intensive applications, life sciences, medical imaging, ray tracing and rendering, scientific simulation, signal and audio processing, statistical modeling, video and image processing.

Features
