+ Complemented by many examples and an additional website with teaching 


Innovations in hardware architecture, like hyper-threading or multicore 
processors, mean that

 parallel computing resources are available for inexpensive desktop computers. 
In only a few

 years, many standard software products will be based on concepts of parallel 

implemented on such hardware, and the range of applications will be much 
broader than that of 

scientific computing, up to now the main application area for parallel 


Rauber and Rünger take up these recent developments in processor architecture 
by giving 

detailed descriptions of parallel programming techniques that are necessary for 

efficient programs for multicore processors as well as for parallel cluster 
systems and 

supercomputers. Their book is structured in three main parts, covering all 
areas of parallel 

computing: the architecture of parallel systems, parallel programming models 
and environments, 

and the implementation of efficient application algorithms. The emphasis lies 
on parallel 

programming techniques needed for different architectures.


The main goal of the book is to present parallel programming techniques that 
can be used in 

many situations for many application areas and which enable the reader to 
develop correct and 

efficient parallel programs. Many examples and exercises are provided to show 
how to apply the 

techniques. The book can be used as both a textbook for students and a 
reference book for 

professionals. The presented material has been used for courses in parallel 
programming at 

different universities for many years.
