Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach shows both student and professional alike the basic concepts of parallel programming and GPU architecture. Various techniques for constructing parallel programs are explored in detail. Case studies demonstrate the development process, which begins with computational thinking and ends with effective and efficient parallel programs. Topics of performance, floating-point format, parallel patterns, and dynamic parallelism are covered in depth.
This best-selling guide to CUDA and GPU parallel programming has been revised with more parallel programming examples, commonly-used libraries such as Thrust, and explanations of the latest tools. With these improvements, the book retains its concise, intuitive, practical approach based on years of road-testing in the authors' own parallel computing courses.
Updates in this new edition include:
New coverage of CUDA 5.0, improved performance, enhanced development tools, increased hardware support, and more
Increased coverage of related technology, OpenCL and new material on algorithm patterns, GPU clusters, host programming, and data parallelism
Two new case studies (on MRI reconstruction and molecular visualization) explore the latest applications of CUDA and GPUs for scientific research and high-performance computing
Blender 3D Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery As you know, every project that involves some kind of construction—such as building a house, movie sets, or virtual sets—needs a project. These projects are made up of a lot of documents and technical drawings that help in the construction of these buildings and movie sets. For the construction crew, these technical drawings and... C++ Standard Library Quick Reference
This quick reference is a condensed guide to the essential data structures, algorithms, and functions provided by the C++ Standard Library. Used by millions of C++ programmers on a daily basis, the C++ Standard Library features core classes for strings, I/O streams, and various generic containers, as well as a comprehensive set of algorithms...
The Fairy Tale World (Routledge Worlds)
The Fairy Tale World is a definitive volume on this ever-evolving field. The book draws on recent critical attention, contesting romantic ideas about timeless tales of good and evil, and arguing that fairy tales are culturally astute narratives that reflect the historical and material circumstances of the societies in which...
Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Applications: Proceedings Data analysis and machine learning are research areas at the intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics and statistics. They cover general methods and techniques that can be applied to a vast set of applications such as web and text mining, marketing, medical science, bioinformatics and business intelligence. This volume... Advanced J2EE Platform Development: Applying Integration Tier Patterns A proven Java(TM)-based approach to standardizing and streamlining legacy migration
This book focuses on the key challenges developers face when using the Java 2 platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) to encapsulate legacy applications for delivery in a multi-tier Internet environment. Leading Sun architects Torbjoern Dahlen and Thorbioern Fritzon...
