Mostafa Abd-El-Barr, ‎Hesham El-Rewini - Advanced Computer Architecture and Parallel Processing
Published: 2005-01-18 | ISBN: 0471467405 | PDF | 288 pages | 4 MB


An outstanding resource for mastering computer architecture and parallel processing
This text enables students and practitioners to quickly master the complexities of advanced computer architecture and parallel processing. The authors have drawn from their own experience to present outstanding coverage of the complexities of advanced computer architecture and parallel processing. Using real-world examples and case studies, students and practitioners will understand the interaction between the hardware and software parts of the system. Focussing on practical solutions—from architectural to software issues—the book discusses key topics including:
Multiprocessors interconnection networks
Performance analysis of multiprocessor architecture
Shared memory architecture
Message passing architecture
Abstract models
Network computing
Parallel programming in PVM
Message passing interface (MPI)
Scheduling and task allocation
The logical organization of the text is designed to help readers build on their knowledge as they progress from one chapter to the next: from problem sets based on actual issues in the workplace that test readers' knowledge, to end-of-chapter references directing readers to additional sources for in-depth research, and chapter summaries offering a concise overview of the key points.
With its comprehensive coverage, Advanced Computer Architecture and Parallel Processing simplifies course material development for instructors and helps readers learn faster, thanks to its logical organization, clear style, and practical examples. It is an excellent learning aid for both graduate and undergraduate students in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. Moreover, engineers and programmers will find it to be an outstanding on-the-job reference.
