In its seventeenth printing, Parallel Programming in C with MPI and OpenMP remains sufficiently up-to-date to be a valuable reference and refresher as well as a useful introduction for writing parallel programs.
It is nice to see references to the textbook I used as well as its follow-on; combined with my original homework solutions using p4 and memories of programming massively parallel computers while in graduate school this book helped me refresh my knowledge rapidly and is useful for the idiosyncrosies of both libraries.
I think it's time for a new edition, though, perhaps with considerations of programming GPUs. Very good explanations. It is useful even if you are programing in fortran and good reference book too.
Not focused to any specific subject ie CFD , it explan everythin in a general form. Hardcover Verified Purchase. The shipping was very fast and the book is in good condition, except for a lot of handwritten markings on all pages: There are many books about parallel programming, most of which only give toy examples to illustrate language constructs or library calls. This book is unusual in that it gives larger examples, fully worked out, with extensive discussion of algorithm design decisions.
The examples are non-trivial and clearly discussed. Thus, this is a great introduction to parallel programming.
The thing that impressed me was that the writing was so clear. True, the sentences tend to be short, but that is high virtue in technical writing. My students have been very positive about the book. I also think the mathematical analysis is good, too, not too easy but not super hard either.
This book just pulls together all the crucial information between two covers. I find myself agreeing almost exactly with where he places his "key" symbols in the margins to highlight important sentences, which is also a good sign that the book is "right on.
I used this as a textbook for a parallel programming course in The author goes into a fair amount of detail about a number of different algorithms e. I consider this a feature; the algorithms serve as good motivation and illustrations of the parallel programming concepts that are presented.
The summaries of the MPI commands in the appendix are as good as anything I've found on the web. The book also gives detailed examples code of how to do mundane things like distributing the contents of a file across distributed memory processors and using your random number generator in such a way as to guarantee that your program produces the same results irrespective of the number of processors it runs on.
Well, to begin with, for a book that has " Most of the book is an analysis of various parallel algorithms, with very little instruction on how to use MPI. There are much better resources out there for learning MPI, as Quinn only covers about 30 of the over functions in MPI, without all that much detail. Some of extremely important and necessary concepts of parallel programming are only mentioned in passing Most of the applications with the exception of matrix operations are simple and basic to the point of making me wonder why you would even bother parallelizing them The book does a very good job of analyzing algorithms, but calling it an "introduction to MPI" or even an "introduction to parallel programming" textbook is incorrect.
This book is a great introduction to the theory of parallel programming. It is important to note that it is not a great reference for MPI, but it does a good job introducing the basic MPI functions and how to implement parallel programs using them. If you are looking for a good parallel programming primer, this book is a good start. One person found this helpful. Work-sharing constructs can be used to divide a task among the threads so that each thread executes its allocated part of the code.
Both task parallelism and data parallelism can be achieved using OpenMP in this way. The runtime environment allocates threads to processors depending on usage, machine load and other factors. The runtime environment can assign the number of threads based on environment variables , or the code can do so using functions. The OpenMP functions are included in a header file labelled omp. Version 2.
Up to version 2. This was recognized as a limitation, and various task parallel extensions were added to implementations. In , an effort to standardize task parallelism was formed, which published a proposal in , taking inspiration from task parallelism features in Cilk , X10 and Chapel. Version 3. Included in the new features in 3.
Version 4. The core elements of OpenMP are the constructs for thread creation, workload distribution work sharing , data-environment management, thread synchronization, user-level runtime routines and environment variables.
The OpenMP specific pragmas are listed below.
The pragma omp parallel is used to fork additional threads to carry out the work enclosed in the construct in parallel. The original thread will be denoted as master thread with thread ID 0. This example is embarrassingly parallel , and depends only on the value of i.
The threads will each receive a unique and private version of the variable. Since OpenMP is a shared memory programming model, most variables in OpenMP code are visible to all threads by default. But sometimes private variables are necessary to avoid race conditions and there is a need to pass values between the sequential part and the parallel region the code block executed in parallel , so data environment management is introduced as data sharing attribute clauses by appending them to the OpenMP directive.
The different types of clauses are:. A method to alter the execution features of OpenMP applications. Used to control loop iterations scheduling, default number of threads, etc.
OpenMP has been implemented in many commercial compilers. Auto-parallelizing compilers that generates source code annotated with OpenMP directives:. One might expect to get an N times speedup when running a program parallelized using OpenMP on a N processor platform.
However, this seldom occurs for these reasons:. Some vendors recommend setting the processor affinity on OpenMP threads to associate them with particular processor cores. It also improves the data locality and reduces the cache-coherency traffic among the cores or processors. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. See also: Fork—join model. Hello, world.
