Computer programming

Today, parallel computing arouses enormous interest among students and professionals as it is clear that, as the new millennium progresses, all computers will work in parallel. A basic knowledge of the design and use of parallel computers is, therefore, essential for both students of computing and users of computers.Designed as an introductory-level textbook for the final year undergraduate students of computer science and engineering, this well-organized book covers state-of-the-art principles and techniques for designing and programming parallel computers. In the process, Professor Rajaraman and Dr. Siva Ram Murthy, with their wealth of knowledge and years of teaching and research experience, give a masterly analysis of the various aspects of parallel computing.The book begins with an introduction to the current state and developments in parallel computing, then it goes on to give a detailed discussion on such topics as instruction level parallel processing, architecture of parallel computers, parallel algorithms and parallel programming. Besides, the book gives an in-depth coverage of compiler transformations and operating systems for parallel computers. The text concludes with a chapter on performance evaluation of parallel computers.Interspersed with copious examples and numerous exercises, this timely book should prove to be a handy and treasured volume for students as well as professionals.
