Is Parallel Programming Hard, And, If So, What Can You Do About It?
by Paul E. McKenney
Number of pages: 413
The purpose of this book is to help you understand how to program shared-memory parallel machines without risking your sanity. By describing the algorithms and designs that have worked well in the past, we hope to help you avoid at least some of the pitfalls that have beset parallel projects.

We consider the problems of distributed detection and estimation in wireless sensor networks. We provide a general framework aimed to show how an efficient design of a sensor network requires a joint organization of in-network communication.

The rapid growth of parallel complexity theory has led to a proliferation of parallel machine models. This book presents a unified theory of parallel computation based on a network model. It is the first such synthesis in book form.

In the near future every programmer will need to understand parallelism, a powerful way to run programs fast. The authors of this straightforward tutorial provide the instruction that will transform ordinary programmers into parallel programmers.
