This is the first book on parallel MATLAB and the first parallel computing book focused on the design, code, debug, and test techniques required to quickly produce well-performing parallel programs.

MATLAB is currently the dominant language of technical computing with one million users worldwide, many of whom can benefit from the increased power offered by inexpensive multicore and multinode parallel computers. MATLAB is an ideal environment for learning about parallel computing, allowing the user to focus on parallel algorithms instead of the details of implementation.

Parallel MATLAB for Multicore and Multinode Computers covers more parallel algorithms and parallel programming models than any other parallel programming book due to the succinctness of MATLAB. It presents a hands-on approach with numerous example programs; wherever possible, the examples are drawn from widely known and well-documented parallel benchmark codes that are representative of many real applications across the field of technical computing.

Audience: Intended for professional scientists and engineers, as well as undergraduate or graduate students, who use MATLAB. It is suitable as either the primary book in a parallel computing class or as a supplementary text in a numerical computing class or a computer science algorithms class.

這是第一本關於並行 MATLAB 的書籍,也是第一本專注於設計、編碼、調試和測試技術的並行計算書籍,以快速生成性能良好的並行程式為目標。

MATLAB 目前是技術計算領域中佔主導地位的語言,全球有一百萬使用者,其中許多人可以從廉價的多核心和多節點並行計算機所提供的增強功能中受益。MATLAB 是學習並行計算的理想環境,讓使用者專注於並行算法而不是實現細節。

《Parallel MATLAB for Multicore and Multinode Computers》由於 MATLAB 的簡潔性,涵蓋了比其他任何並行編程書籍更多的並行算法和並行編程模型。它以實例編程的方式呈現,盡可能使用廣為人知且有詳細文檔的並行基準代碼作為例子,這些例子代表了技術計算領域中許多真實應用。

目標讀者:專業科學家和工程師,以及使用 MATLAB 的本科或研究生學生。它適合作為並行計算課程的主要教材,或作為數值計算課程或計算機科學算法課程的補充教材。
