Erlang is a concurrent, functional programming language designed for programming large industrial real time systems. The language is untyped and has a pattern matching syntax. Functions are written as a set of recursion equations and the language has explicit concurrency and asynchronous message passing. Erlang provides explicit concurrency, has asynchronous message passing and is relatively free from side effects. Written in a tutorial style, the emphasis of this book is on learning through example and a number of well known problems in designing and programming concurrent fault-tolerant real-time systems are illustrated.

We consider the problems of distributed detection and estimation in wireless sensor networks. We provide a general framework aimed to show how an efficient design of a sensor network requires a joint organization of in-network communication.

Introduction to parallel programming and a guide for developing programs for parallel and distributed systems. Programs are developed in a methodical fashion and both cost and performance are considered at each stage in a design.

Vector Models for Data-Parallel Computing describes a model of parallelism that extends and formalizes the Data-Parallel model on which the Connection Machine and other supercomputers are based. It presents many algorithms based on the model.

In the near future every programmer will need to understand parallelism, a powerful way to run programs fast. The authors of this straightforward tutorial provide the instruction that will transform ordinary programmers into parallel programmers.
