An Introduction to Distributed and Parallel Computing
This book provides a comprehensive overview of both the hardware and software issues involved in designing state-of-the-art distributed and parallel computing systems.
Essential for both students and practitioners, this book explores distributed computing from the bottom-up approach, starting with computing organization, communications and networks, and then discussing operating systems, client/server architectures, distributed databases and other applications. The book also includes coverage of parallel language design, including Occam and Linda. Each chapter ends with questions, and the book contains an extensive glossary and list of reference sources.
