View Full Version : Parallel programming book

Can anyone suggest me a good parallel programming book for a begginner? Have in mind that I pretty much don't know anything about it, and that I have experience in C and Matlab only (mostly Matlab).

You might need to be more specific. The term "parallel programming" is ambiguous. Common meanings (all of them different) include

(1) Carrying out calculations concurrently (as in high performance computing, multithreading, and things like that)

(2) Programming in parallel (as in multiple programmers working concurrently on parts of a project)

(3) Interfacing to the parallel port (for example, to program an embedded device or an Arduino board via a parallel port)

I (and others) can probably make an educated guess that you mean the first, but you would be better off asking questions in a precise manner.
