In order to tackle the complex problems that face today's engineers and scientists, it is sometimes necessary to harness the power of high-performance computing. Techniques to enhance performance include the development of improved algorithms and the use of parallel computing, and the most efficient solutions are often achieved when these two elements are combined. Parallel computing involves the division of a complicated program into smaller tasks which are then performed simultaneously by several processors, thus reducing the total execution time dramatically. However this process raises several new issues, including task allocation and communication between processors, which do not appear in normal serial computing. Containing a selection of invited review articles, this book covers issues central to parallel computing algorithms. ? Features chapters on both general analysis and practical applications. ? Places particular emphasis on a variety of applications in engineering. ? Designed specifically to increase awareness of the potential of parallel computing amongst engineers and scientists.
