About The Book
The new edition offers a balanced treatment of theory, technology architecture and software used by advanced computer systems. It presents state-of-the-art principles and techniques for designing and programming parallel, vector, and scalable computer systems. The emphasis on parallelism, scalability and programmability lends an added flavor to this text. Two new chapters have been added on Instruction Level Parallelism and Recent Advancements in Computer Architecture.
