Parallel numerical algorithms(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume, designed for computational scientists and engineers working on applications requiring the memories and processing rates of largescale parallelism, leading algorithmicists survey their own fielddefining contributions, together with enough historical and bibliographical perspective to permit working one's way to the frontiers. This book is distinguished from earlier surveys in parallel numerical algorithms by its extension of coverage beyond core linear algebraic methods into tools more directly associated with partial differential and integral equations  though still with an appealing generality  and by its focus on practical mediumgranularity parallelism, approachable through traditional programming languages. Several of the authors used their invitation to participate as a chance to stand back and create a unified overview, which nonspecialists will appreciate

Parallelism in matrix computations by
Efstratios Gallopoulos(
Book
)
8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is primarily intended as a research monograph that could also be used in graduate courses for the design of parallel algorithms in matrix computations. It assumes general but not extensive knowledge of numerical linear algebra, parallel architectures, and parallel programming paradigms. The book consists of four parts: (I) Basics; (II) Dense and Special Matrix Computations; (III) Sparse Matrix Computations; and (IV) Matrix functions and characteristics. Part I deals with parallel programming paradigms and fundamental kernels, including reordering schemes for sparse matrices. Part II is devoted to dense matrix computations such as parallel algorithms for solving linear systems, linear least squares, the symmetric algebraic eigenvalue problem, and the singularvalue decomposition. It also deals with the development of parallel algorithms for special linear systems such as banded, Vandermonde, Toeplitz, and block Toeplitz systems. Part III addresses sparse matrix computations: (a) the development of parallel iterative linear system solvers with emphasis on scalable preconditioners, (b) parallel schemes for obtaining a few of the extreme eigenpairs or those contained in a given interval in the spectrum of a standard or generalized symmetric eigenvalue problem, and (c) parallel methods for computing a few of the extreme singular triplets. Part IV focuses on the development of parallel algorithms for matrix functions and special characteristics such as the matrix pseudospectrum and the determinant. The book also reviews the theoretical and practical background necessary when designing these algorithms and includes an extensive bibliography that will be useful to researchers and students alike. The book brings together many existing algorithms for the fundamental matrix computations that have a proven track record of efficient implementation in terms of data locality and data transfer on stateoftheart systems, as well as several algorithms that are presented for the first time, focusing on the opportunities for parallelism and algorithm robustness
