Software Optimization for High-Performance Computing: Creating Faster Applications

This book is written for programmers who want to get high performance from the software they write. The optimization techniques discussed are applicable to all computers, but are of most interest to designers of software for high performance computers, since they are most concerned with high performance. The main focus is on UNIX, though since Windows NT is now being used on high performance servers, there is limited coverage on this. Single processor and parallel performance is discussed.
