High Performance Computing with the MOEA Framework and Ignite By David Hadka
eBook (PDF): $6.00
This book demonstrates how to exploit high performance computing with the MOEA Framework, from small personal computers up to large-scale supercomputers. For distributed memory parallelization, we... More > show how to use Apache Ignite to construct master-slave, island model, and hybrid parallelization architectures. Purchase of this book includes complete code samples.

Merrimac -- High-Performance and Highly-Efficient Scientific Computing with Streams By Mattan Erez
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Stanford Ph.D. Dissertation: Advances in VLSI technology have made the raw ingredients for computation plentiful. Large numbers of fast functional units and large amounts of memory and bandwidth can... More > be made efficient in terms of chip area, cost, and energy, however, high-performance computers realize only a small fraction of VLSI's potential. This dissertation describes the Merrimac streaming supercomputer architecture and system. Merrimac has an integrated view of the applications, software system, compiler, and architecture. We will show how this approach leads to over an order of magnitude gains in performance per unit cost, unit power, and unit floor-space for scientific applications when compared to common scientific computers designed around clusters of commodity general-purpose processors. The dissertation discusses Merrimac's stream architecture, the mapping of scientific codes to effectively run on the stream architecture, and system issues in the Merrimac supercomputer.< Less

This book covers a verity of topics, including in-memory data grid, highly available service grid, streaming (event processing for IoT and fast data) and in-memory computing use cases from... More > high-performance computing to get performance gains. The book will be particularly useful for those, who have the following use cases: 1) You have a high volume of ACID transactions in your system. 2) You have database bottleneck in your application and want to solve the problem. 3) You want to develop and deploy Microservices in a distributed fashion. 4) You have an existing Hadoop ecosystem (OLAP) and want to improve the performance of map/reduce jobs without making any changes in your existing map/reduce jobs. 5) You want to share Spark RDD directly in-memory (without storing the state into the disk) 7) You are planning to process continuous never-ending streams and complex events of data. 8) You want to use distributed computations in parallel fashion to gain high performance.< Less
The Science of Programming Matrix Computations By Enrique S. Quintana-Ortí
eBook (PDF): $0.00
(3 Ratings)
The Formal Linear Algebra Methods Environment (FLAME) encompasses a methodology for deriving an algorithm for a dense linear algebra operation hand-in-hand with its proof of correctness as well as... More > an approach to represent (and code) the resulting algorithm. This books reviews the foundations of FLAME: the derivation methodology, the notation, and the high-level Application Programming Interfaces, which are applied to basic linear algebra operations as well as operations for the solution of linear systems. While the text targets the novice, its emphasis on high performance algorithms should also be of interest to the expert.< Less

Computational Physics, Vol I By Konstantinos Anagnostopoulos
Paperback: List Price: $32.51 $16.26 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is an introduction to the computational methods used in physics and other scientific fields. It is addressed to an audience that has already been exposed to the introductory level of... More > college physics, usually taught during the first two years of an undergraduate program in science and engineering. The book starts with very simple problems in particle motion and ends with an in-depth discussion of advanced techniques used in Monte Carlo simulations in statistical mechanics. The level of instruction rises slowly, while discussing problems like the diffusion equation, electrostatics on the plane, quantum mechanics and random walks. The book aims to provide the students with the background and the experience needed in order to advance to high performance computing projects in science and engineering. But it also tries to keep the students motivated by considering interesting applications in physics, like chaos, quantum mechanics, special relativity and the physics of phase transitions vol I: Chap. 1-6< Less
