CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Essential reading to understand patterns for parallel programming
Software patterns have revolutionized the way we think about how software is
designed, built, and documented, and the design of parallel software requires
you to consider other particular design aspects and special skills. From
clusters to supercomputers, success heavily depends on the design skills of
Patterns for Parallel Software Design presents a pattern-oriented software
architecture approach to parallel software design. This approach is not a
design method in the classic sense, but a new way of managing and exploiting
existing design knowledge for designing parallel programs. Moreover, such
approaches enhance not only build-time properties of parallel systems, but
also, and particularly, their run-time properties. Features known solutions in
concurrent and distributed programming, applied to the development of parallel
programs Provides architectural patterns that describe how to divide an
algorithm and/or data to find a suitable partition and link it with a
programming structure that allows for such a division Presents an architectural
point of view and explains the development of parallel software
Patterns for Parallel Software Design will give you the skills you need to
develop parallel software.
