Since this book was first published in 1986, a number of major developments have taken place in the world of supercomputers. The author has revised this work accordingly, adding two new chapters dealing with improvements in technology and novel architectures. Written in an informal style for a general, computer-literate audience, the book keeps technical details to a minimum and provides clear explanations of them where necessary. The first part of the book describes several different supercomputers, their architecture, the technology used in building them, and the constraints imposed by their design. The second part focuses on software, numerical methods, and performance in terms of practical applications.
