Introduction to Distributed Systems
by Sabu M. Thampi
Publisher: arXiv 2009
Number of pages: 23
This text provides an overview of distributed computing systems. The definition, architecture, characteristics of distributed systems and the various distributed computing fallacies are discussed in the beginning. Finally, discusses client/server computing, World Wide Web and types of distributed systems.

With the book BIG CPU, BIG DATA, my goal is to teach you how to write parallel programs that take full advantage of the vast processing power of modern multicore computers, compute clusters, and graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerators.

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.
