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.El-Rewini, Hesham is the author of 'Fundamentals Of Computer Organization And Architecture', published 2005 under ISBN 9780471467403 and ISBN 0471467405.
