Parallel Programming With Mpi (97 Edition)by Peter Pacheco
Synopses & Reviews
A hands-on introduction to parallel programming based on the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) standard, the de-facto industry standard adopted by major vendors of commercial parallel systems. This textbook/tutorial, based on the C language, contains many fully-developed examples and exercises. The complete source code for the examples is available in both C and Fortran 77. Students and professionals will find that the portability of MPI, combined with a thorough grounding in parallel programming principles, will allow them to program any parallel system, from a network of workstations to a parallel supercomputer.
* Proceeds from basic blocking sends and receives to the most esoteric aspects of MPI.
* Includes extensive coverage of performance and debugging.
* Discusses a variety of approaches to the problem of basic I/O on parallel machines.
* Provides exercises and programming assignments.
Book News Annotation:
An introductory text on parallel programming based on the Message- Passing Interface (MPI), designed for use as a self-paced tutorial for professionals or as a text for courses in parallel programming and parallel computing. Features fully developed program examples to introduce each concept, coverage of performance and debugging, and chapter summaries, exercises, and programming assignments. Assumes background in first-year college math and knowledge of a high-level procedural computing language.

About the Author
Peter Pacheco received a PhD in mathematics from Florida State University. After completing graduate school, he became one of the first professors in UCLA’s “Program in Computing,” which teaches basic computer science to students at the College of Letters and Sciences there. Since leaving UCLA, he has been on the faculty of the University of San Francisco. At USF Peter has served as chair of the computer science department and is currently chair of the mathematics department. His research is in parallel scientific computing. He has worked on the development of parallel software for circuit simulation, speech recognition, and the simulation of large networks of biologically accurate neurons. Peter has been teaching parallel computing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for nearly twenty years. He is the author of Parallel Programming with MPI, published by Morgan Kaufmann Publishers.
