Traditionally, the discipline of parallel computing has encompassed a wide range of topics ranging from machine organization all the way to applications. The Encyclopedia of Parallel Computing is likewise broad in scope, covering machine organization, programming, algorithms, and applications. Within each area, the Encyclopedia covers concepts, designs, and specific implementations. In the area of algorithms, the encyclopedia will cover (1) concepts such as cache-oblivious algorithms and systolic algorithms, (2) specific numerical and non-numerical algorithms such as parallel matrix-matrix multiplication and graph algorithms to, for example, find connected components in parallel, and (3) implementations of algorithms in the form of widely used libraries such as LAPACK. In the area of architecture, the encyclopedia will contain (1) concepts such as sequential consistency and cache coherency, (2) machine classes such as shared-memory multiprocessors and dataflow machines, and (3) specific machines such as IBM's cell processor and Intel's multicore machines. In the area of software, it will cover (1) concepts such as races and autoparallelization, and (2) designs in the form of parallel programming languages, library interfaces, and operating systems. The encyclopedia also will cover application issues emphasizing the type of parallel computation involved and the magnitude in terms of computational requirements of the applications.Each encyclopedia entry will be concise and clear and will contain references to the literature for readers wishing to study the topic of the entry in depth. The broad coverage--together with extensive pointers to the literature for in-depth study'will make the encyclopedia an invaluable reference tool for researchers, practitioners and students alike.Also, by that year, the detail and computational cost of a useful practical analysis far exceeded the Dodge Neon ... The benchmark has been completed on several commercial analysis codes of similar nature, all available for parallel computinganbsp;...
