Book Description

This book teaches you how to write parallel programs for multicore machines, compute clusters, GPU accelerators, and big data map-reduce jobs, in the Java language, with the free, easy-to-use, object-oriented Parallel Java 2 Library. The book also covers how to measure the performance of parallel programs and how to design the programs to run as fast as possible.

The goal of this book 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.

To study parallel programming with this book, you'll need the following prerequisite knowledge: Java programming; C programming (for GPU pro grams); computer organization concepts (CPU, memory, cache, and so on); operating system concepts (threads, thread synchronization).

  • GPU Gems 3 (Hubert Nguyen)

    The programmability of modern GPUs allows developers to not only distinguish themselves from one another but also to use this awesome processing power for non-graphics applications, such as physics simulation, financial analysis, etc.

  • The Practice of Parallel Programming (Sergey A. Babkin)

    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.

  • Introduction to Parallel Computing (Blaise Barney)

    This book explains how to design, debug, and evaluate the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs. It teaches students how to compile, run and modify example programs. It is a complete end-to-end source of information on almost all aspects.

  • Is Parallel Programming Hard? If So, What Can You Do About It?

    It examines what makes parallel programming hard, and describes design techniques that can help you avoid many parallel-programming pitfalls. It is primarily intended for low-level C/C++ code, but offers valuable lessons for other environments as well.
