Publisher: MIT Press 1992
Number of pages: 246
In the not-too-distant future every programmer, software engineer, and computer scientist will need to understand parallelism, a powerful and proven way to run programs fast. The authors of this straightforward tutorial explain why this is so and provide the instruction that will transform ordinary programmers into parallel programmers.
