Computer Architecture And Parallel Processing 1st Edition is a complete guide to parallel processing and computer architecture.
Summary Of The Book
Computer architecture is a branch of Computer Science dealing with Logical Structure, Physical Configuration, Formats, Operational Sequences, Protocols, Controlling Configurations, and Controlling Operations pertaining to computers.
Computer Architecture And Parallel Processing contains an Introduction to the world of Parallel Processing and chapters on topics like Input and Output Subsystems, and Memory Subsystems. It also has algorithms related to Processors, Multiprocessor Architecture, Performance Enhancement, and Multiprocessing Controls.
The principles of Pipelining, Vector Processing, SIMD Computers, Multiprocessor Programming, Data Flow Computers, VLSI Computations, and Multiprocessing Systems are some of the other concepts discussed in the book.
Computer Architecture And Parallel Processing is great for students of Parallel Processing and those of Advanced Architecture in Computer. It has received recommendations and rare reviews from professors of the best colleges for B.Tech. Even though it mostly focuses on theoretical discussion, the content does not appear to be technical and the abundant examples given make it easier to comprehend the text.
