Chapter parallsl Tiny Fortran. The text then elaborates on basic parallel programming techniques, barriers and race conditions, and nested loops. The book first offers information on Fortran, hardware and operating system models, and processes, shared memory, and simple parallel programs.
A number of common data dependencies are described and ways of circumventing them are given.

Chapter 13 Some Applications. The last chapter contains a 2-page list of programming projects. Chapter 5 describes two elementary techniques for ap- portioning loops among various processors: Order Form for Parallel Programs on Diskette. Chapter 7 Introduction to SchedulingNested Loops.
Selected pages Page Post on Oct views. Almost every concept or technique is described by a short program. Introductin 5 Basic Parallel Programming Techniques. The manuscript takes a look at overcoming data dependencies, scheduling summary, linear recurrence relations, and performance tuning. Chapter 11 Performance Tuning.
In the introductory chapter, the author ex- plains his pedagogical approach by stating that the text stresses simplicity and focuses on fundamentals. Topics include parallel programming and the structure of programs, effect of the number of processes on overhead, loop splitting, indirect scheduling, block scheduling and forward dependency, and induction variable.
The book is divided into fifteen chapters and kntroduction appendices. Academic PressMay 10, – Computers – pages.
Examples ijtroduction the book are written in this language and through the use of a parallel programming library. Equivalent C and Fortran Constructs. It is intended for the application programmers with no previous knowledge of parallel programming but who have ex- perience in an algorithmic language introdutcion as Basic, For- tran, Pascal, C, or Ada.
Chapter 4 presents the functions for programminy parallel programs in- cluding forking for creating processes a process i s a generalization of the concept of a program; it is a pro- gram along with its environment or support structuresjoining for destroying processes, and sharing memory.
Chapters are intended to familiarize readers with the fundamentals of parallel programming. Introduction to Parallel Programming focuses on the techniques, processes, methodologies, and approaches involved in parallel programming.

Chapter 6 Inrroduction and Race Conditions. The semaphore does not limit mutual exclusion in a protected region to a single process at a time, but i t allows the creation of programmin protected region for several processes. Chapter 7 is an introduction to scheduling how to balance the workload among processors.
Chapter 8 Overcoming Data Dependencies. In Chapter 6, the concept of racing condition i s introduced and the barrier mecha- nism is described for synchronizing the processes. Parallel programming of a discrete event, discrete time simulator is described in Chapter 12 with an eye on the topics of data dependency and contention for data struc- tures when more than one process try to access a data structure simultaneously. Chapter 13 describes parallel implementation of several problems steveb exploring a maze, the traveling salesman problem, and the Gauss elimination method for the solution of simultaneous lin- ear algebraic equations.

Chapter 11 explains how various sources of overhead time to fork processes, for initial- ization, for any sequential portions in the program, for synchronization calls, ssteven for joins can reduce the ideal speedup. The book i s full of examples. But the organization of the book could be clarified.
Chapter 15 Programming Projects. The publication is a valuable reference for researchers interested in parallel programming.
