Introduction to Parallel Computing |

My main research interest is in parallel computing. I've
been involved in the development of the
MPI Standard for message-passing,
and I've written a short
* User's Guide
to MPI*. My book *
Parallel Programming with MPI* is an elementary introduction
to programming parallel systems that use the MPI 1 library of
extensions to C and Fortran.
It is intended for use by students and professionals with
some knowledge of programming conventional, single-processor systems,
but who have little or no experience programming multiprocessor systems.

I've also worked in computational neuroscience, and my students and I have developed a collection of programs, Parallel Neurosys, for the simulation of large networks of biologically accurate neurons on parallel computers.

Most recently I've written a more general introduction to parallel
programming, *An Introduction to
Parallel Programming*. This is also an elementary
introduction to parallel programming, but in addition to MPI,
it introduces parallel programming in Pthreads and
OpenMP.
