Peter Pacheco received a PhD in mathematics from Florida State University. After
completing graduate school, he became one of the first professors in UCLA's "Program
in Computing, which teaches basic computer science to students at the College
of Letters and Sciences there. Since leaving UCLA, he has been on the faculty of
the University of San Francisco. At USF Peter has served as chair of the computer
science department and is currently chair of the mathematics department.
His research is in parallel scientific computing. He has worked on the development
of parallel software for circuit simulation, speech recognition, and the simulation
of large networks of biologically accurate neurons. Peter has been teaching
parallel computing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for nearly twenty
years. He is the author of Parallel Programming with MPI, published by Morgan
A hands-on introduction to parallel programming based on the Message-Passing Interface (MPI) standard, the de-facto industry standard adopted by major vendors of commercial parallel systems. This textbook/tutorial, based on the C language, contains many fully-developed examples and exercises. The complete source code for the examples is available in both C and Fortran 77. Students and professionals will find that the portability of MPI, combined with a thorough grounding in parallel programming principles, will allow them to program any parallel system, from a network of workstations to a parallel supercomputer.
* Proceeds from basic blocking sends and receives to the most esoteric aspects of MPI.
* Includes extensive coverage of performance and debugging.
* Discusses a variety of approaches to the problem of basic I/O on parallel machines.
* Provides exercises and programming assignments.
