This book provides an advanced guide to the issues of the parallel and multithreaded programming. It goes beyond the high-level design of the applications, into the details that are often overlooked but vital to make the programs work.
by Jon Bentley - Addison-Wesley Professional
The book focuses on choosing the right algorithms and on showing how to solve problems effectively. Each chapter frames a particular programming task (sorting numbers, creating anagrams, counting the words). Code examples are written in C and C++.
