Designing and Building Parallel Programs is a book for students and professionals who need to know how to write parallel programs. It is neither a programming language manual nor an academic treatise on algorithms. Instead, it approaches parallel programming as an engineering activity, in which programs are developed in a methodical fashion and both cost and performance are considered at each stage in a design. It is intended as both an introduction to parallel programming and a practitioner's guide for programmers, engineers, and scientists developing programs for parallel and distributed computer systems.
