**Parallel Algorithms**

by Henri Casanova, et al.

**Publisher**: CRC Press 2008**Number of pages**: 348

**Description**:

The aim of this book is to provide a rigorous yet accessible treatment of parallel algorithms, including theoretical models of parallel computation, parallel algorithm design for homogeneous and heterogeneous platforms, complexity and performance analysis, and fundamental notions of scheduling. The focus is on algorithms for distributed-memory parallel architectures in which computing elements communicate by exchanging messages.
