Patterns for Parallel Software Design is essential reading for developers looking to understand patterns for parallel programming.
Written from an architectural point of view, Patterns for Parallel Software Design presents a pattern-oriented software architecture approach to parallel software design providing solutions in concurrent and distributed programming, based on existing design knowledge.
A patter-oriented approach to parallel software design is not a design method in the classic sense, but a new way of managing and utilizing existing design knowledge for designing parallel programs. Using this approach leads to parallel software systems that are modular, adaptable, understandable and evolvable. Thus this method aims to enhance not only build-time properties of parallel systems, bu also their run time properties.
Key topics include:
Use of known solutions in concurrent and distributed programming, applied to the development of parallel programs.
Significant architectural patterns that describe how to divide an algorithm and/or data to find a suitbale partition, and hence, link it with a programming structure that allows for such a division.
Delivers proven solutions to the problems faced by parallel programmers.
Coverage is aimed at developers new to parallel programming, who require a base to understand parallel software design and implementation for futrue parallel platforms. Patterns for Parallel Software Design is an essential must-have guide for developers and programmers who want to solve unique design problems.
