**Parallel and Distributed Computation: Numerical Methods**

by Dimitri P. Bertsekas, John Tsitsiklis

**Publisher**: Athena Scientific 2003**ISBN/ASIN**: 1886529019

**Description**:

This highly acclaimed work, first published in 1989, is a comprehensive and theoretically sound treatment of parallel and distributed numerical methods. It focuses on algorithms that are naturally suited for massive parallelization, and it explores the fundamental convergence, rate of convergence, communication, and synchronization issues associated with such algorithms.
