Using Concurrency and Parallelism Effectively – I

'The aim of this book is to show both students and practitioners that concurrent and parallel programming does not need to be as hard as it is often portrayed and in fact is often easier than building the equivalent sequential system. This will be achieved by presenting a set of example systems that demonstrate the underlying principles of parallel system design based upon real world examples. Each chapter will discuss the complete implementation of such a system, rather than presenting fragments of solutions. The approach will therefore be founded in principled engineering rather than a detailed exploration of the scientific underpinning. The science has been explored in many books but these have not demonstrated the engineering aspects of actually designing and building parallel systems.... Show More
