Description

This practical book gives programmers exactly what they need to develop applications that support concurrency -- the execution of several tasks simultaneously. With the advent of multi-core processors, there's great interest today in parallel computing, or concurrency, in which several processes are executed at the same time. This book helps programmers develop parallel code algorithms for multi-core processors, including ways to keep algorithms as scalable as possible to take advantage of processors in the future that will have an even a larger number of cores.

Author Biography

Clay Breshears has been with Intel since September 2000. He started as a Senior Parallel Application Engineer at the Intel Parallel Applications Center in Champaign, IL, implementing multithreaded and distributed solutions in customer applications. Clay is currently a Course Architect for the Intel Software College, specializing in multi-core and multithreaded programming and training. Before joining Intel, Clay was a Research Scientist at Rice University helping Department of Defense researchers make best use of the latest High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms and resources. Clay received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 1996, but has been involved with parallel computation and programming for over twenty years; six of those years were spent in academia at Eastern Washington University and The University of Southern Mississippi.
