Programming Parallel Computers

It’s a source of some frustration to me that we have made no real progress in understanding how to program parallel computers. I have some new ideas on why this is so (apart from the economics) but in the meantime want to bring to you attention a book that I wrote some time ago that seems to be relevant today.

Interactions, spot on. Interaction optimization is definitely more important than computation optimization today, something that is hard to internalize and act upon in my experience. I usually speak about “communication” instead of using the word “interaction” – but when I say “communication” people think of MPI but not synchronization and shared memory (and many other things that cause communication activity). Interactions is more clear. Thanks for the pointer!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
