Designing and Building Parallel Programs
by Ian Foster
Publisher: Addison Wesley 1995
Number of pages: 430
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.

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.
