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.

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.

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.
