Parallel Scientific Computation

A Structured Approach Using BSP

Rob H. Bisseling

  • Based on the BSP model for parallel computing (the only English-language book on BSP), which is easy to learn and apply
  • Presents a single parallel system for all architectures so that the reader need not learn multiple systems
  • Contains many clear figures, of which most are in colour, to help facilitate deeper understanding
  • Includes example programs, also available online, for the reader to test and adapt if desired
  • Range of topics covered mean that the book is suitable for both Mathematics or Computer Science courses

New to this Edition:

  • Several chapters contain new material, ensuring the book's continued relevance
  • Chapter 5 on graph matching is completely new. The total amount of new material is over 100 pages and makes the book now also suitable for a computer science course
  • New exercises in all chapters, class-tested as course projects
  • All sections have been brought up to date, such as: numerical experiments on recent hardware, bibliographic notes on recent literature
