This is an excellent book for getting a formal understanding of processes and tools for parallel programs. It is definitely dated, the most advanced high level programming language driving examples being Java 2. Nevertheless, it is informative and well-written.

The patterns are more conceptual and less driven by interfaces and blocks, as are many programming pattern books. But the examples of real problems implemented or stubbed (Mandelbrot algorithms, sorting algorithms, molecular processing, fo

This book is very consistent, it took me just 2 days to overview it and order my knowledge about parallel programming. It really learns you about the space of possible solutions when you're going to work with parallel systems. What's notable is one of authors (Tim Mattson) is not a programmer, he is chemist and reading the book you are touching real science. ...more
