From the Back Cover:

This is an introduction to parallel processing intended for junior, senior and graduate level courses. Foster builds actual applications programs and uses them to solve actual engineering problems in a variety of disciplines.

Parallel computing, once found only in academic/research environments is now becoming the computing platform of choice in a wide range of disciplines within the academic and commercial world. Engineering solutions are now primarily created on machines capable of parallel processing and scientific advances are more and more a result of the power and flexibility of the parallel paradigm.

This book is a guide to a larger resource accessible via the Internet: The Mosaic Guide to Designing and Building Parallel Programs.

About the Author:

I hold positions as Scientist in the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory, and Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago. I lead computer science projects developing parallel languages and tools and a computational science effort developing parallel climate models. My major research interests are in various aspects of parallel and distributed computing: algorithms, languages, tools. Recently, I've been working on the techniques required to integrate high-performance computing into large-scale internetworked environments.
