Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing by Michael A. Heroux

Book Description

Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing is the first in-depth discussion of parallel computing in 10 years; it reflects the mix of topics that mathematicians, scientists, and computer scientists focus on to make parallel processing effective for scientific problems. It is divided into four parts: The first concerns performance modeling, analysis, and optimization; the second focuses on parallel algorithms and software for an array of problems common to many modeling and simulation applications; the third emphasizes tools and environments that can ease and enhance the process of application development; and the fourth looks at applications that require parallel computing for scaling to solve larger and more realistic models that can advance science and engineering. In sum, this is an up-to-date reference for researchers and application developers on the state of the art in scientific computing. It also serves as an excellent overview and introduction, especially for students interested in computational modeling and simulation.

Author Biography - Michael A. Heroux

Michael A. Heroux is the Solvers Project Leader at Sandia National Laboratory; his work focuses on new algorithm development and robust parallel implementation of solver components. He leads development of the Trilinos Project, an effort to provide solution methods in a state-of-the-art software framework. He also maintains an active interest in the interaction between scientific/engineering applications and high-performance computer architectures. Padma Raghavan is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Her research interests include parallel and distributed computing, sparse matrix graph techniques and their applications, and software environments and component architectures for large-scale computational materials science. Horst D. Simon is Associate Laboratory Director for Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His recursive spectral bisection algorithm is regarded as a breakthrough in parallel algorithms for unstructured computations, and he was honored for his algorithm research efforts with the 1988 Gordon Bell Prize for parallel processing research.
