Shared Memory Application Programming presents the key concepts and applications of parallel programming, in an accessible and engaging style applicable to developers across many domains. Multithreaded programming is today a core technology, at the basis of all software development projects in any branch of applied computer science. This book guides readers to develop insights about threaded programming and introduces two popular platforms for multicore development: OpenMP and Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB). Author Victor Alessandrini leverages his rich experience to explain each platform’s design strategies, analyzing the focus and strengths underlying their often complementary capabilities, as well as their interoperability. The book is divided into two parts: the first develops the essential concepts of thread management and synchronization, discussing the way they are implemented in native multithreading libraries (Windows threads, Pthreads) as well as in the modern C++11 threads standard. The second provides an in-depth discussion of TBB and OpenMP including the latest features in OpenMP 4.0 extensions to ensure readers’ skills are fully up to date. Focus progressively shifts from traditional thread parallelism to modern task parallelism deployed by modern programming environments. Several chapter include examples drawn from a variety of disciplines, including molecular dynamics and image processing, with full source code and a software library incorporating a number of utilities that readers can adapt into their own projects.

Using OpenMP Excerpt :

A comprehensive overview of OpenMP, the standard application programming interface for shared memory parallel computing—a reference for students and professionals. "I hope that readers will learn to use the full expressibility and power of OpenMP. This book should provide an excellent introduction to beginners, and the performance section should help those with some experience who want to push OpenMP to its limits." —from the foreword by David J. Kuck, Intel Fellow, Software and Solutions Group, and Director, Parallel and Distributed Solutions, Intel Corporation OpenMP, a portable programming interface for shared memory parallel computers, was adopted as an informal standard in 1997 by computer scientists who wanted a unified model on which to base programs for shared memory systems. OpenMP is now used by many software developers; it offers significant advantages over both hand-threading and MPI. Using OpenMP offers a comprehensive introduction to parallel programming concepts and a detailed overview of OpenMP. Using OpenMP discusses hardware developments, describes where OpenMP is applicable, and compares OpenMP to other programming interfaces for shared and distributed memory parallel architectures. It introduces the individual features of OpenMP, provides many source code examples that demonstrate the use and functionality of the language constructs, and offers tips on writing an efficient OpenMP program. It describes how to use OpenMP in full-scale applications to achieve high performance on large-scale architectures, discussing several case studies in detail, and offers in-depth troubleshooting advice. It explains how OpenMP is translated into explicitly multithreaded code, providing a valuable behind-the-scenes account of OpenMP program performance. Finally, Using OpenMP considers trends likely to influence OpenMP development, offering a glimpse of the possibilities of a future OpenMP 3.0 from the vantage point of the current OpenMP 2.5.

OpenMP Shared Memory Parallel Programming Excerpt :

This book contains the presentations given at the Workshop on OpenMP App- cations and Tools, WOMPAT 2001. The workshop was held on July 30 and 31, 2001 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA. It brought together designers, users, and researchers of the OpenMP application programming int- face. OpenMP has emerged as the standard for shared memory parallel progr- ming. For the rst time, it is possible to write parallel programs that are portable across the majority of shared memory parallel computers. WOMPAT 2001 s- ved as a forum for all those interested in OpenMP and allowed them to meet, share ideas and experiences, and discuss the latest developments of OpenMP and its applications. WOMPAT 2001 was co-sponsored by the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB). It followed a series of workshops on OpenMP, including WOMPAT 2000, EWOMP 2000, and WOMPEI 2000. For WOMPAT 2001, we solicited papers formally and published them in the form of this book. The authors submitted extended abstracts, which were reviewed by the program committee. All submitted papers were accepted. The authors were asked to prepare a nal paper in which they addressed the reviewers comments. The proceedings, in the form of this book, were created in time to be available at the workshop. In this way, we hope to have brought out a timely report of ongoing OpenMP-related research and development e orts as well as ideas for future improvements.

OpenMP Shared Memory Parallel Programming Excerpt :

OpenMP is an application programming interface (API) that is widely accepted as a standard for high-level shared-memory parallel programming. It is a portable, scalable programming model that provides a simple and ?exible interface for - veloping shared-memory parallel applications in Fortran, C, and C++. Since its introduction in 1997, OpenMP has gained support from the majority of high-performance compiler and hardware vendors. Under the direction of the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB), the OpenMP standard is being further improved. Active research in OpenMP compilers, runtime systems, tools, and environments continues to drive its evolution. To provide a forum for the d- semination and exchange of information about and experiences with OpenMP, the community of OpenMP researchers and developers in academia and industry is organized under cOMPunity (www. compunity. org). Workshops on OpenMP have taken place at a variety of venues around the world since 1999: the European Workshop on OpenMP (EWOMP), the North American Workshop on OpenMP Applications and Tools (WOMPAT), and the AsianWorkshoponOpenMP Experiences andImplementation (WOMPEI)were each held annually and attracted an audience from both academia and industry. The intended purpose of the new International Workshop on OpenMP (IWOMP) was to consolidate these three OpenMP workshops into a single, yearly inter- tional conference. The ?rst IWOMP meeting was held during June 1–4, 2005, in Eugene, Oregon, USA. The second meeting took place during June 12–15, in Reims, France.

High Level Parallel Programming Models and Supportive Environments Excerpt :

On the 23rd of April, 2001, the 6th Workshop on High-Level Parallel P- gramming Models and Supportive Environments (LCTES’98) was held in San Francisco. HIPShas been held over the past six years in conjunction with IPDPS, the Internation Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium. The HIPSworkshop focuses on high-level programming of networks of wo- stations, computing clusters and of massively-parallel machines. Its goal is to bring together researchers working in the areas of applications, language design, compilers, system architecture and programming tools to discuss new devel- ments in programming such systems. In recent years, several standards have emerged with an increasing demand of support for parallel and distributed processing. On one end, message-passing frameworks, such as PVM, MPI and VIA, provide support for basic commu- cation. On the other hand, distributed object standards, such as CORBA and DCOM, provide support for handling remote objects in a client-server fashion but also ensure certain guarantees for the quality of services. The key issues for the success of programming parallel and distributed en- ronments are high-level programming concepts and e?ciency. In addition, other quality categories have to be taken into account, such as scalability, security, bandwidth guarantees and fault tolerance, just to name a few. Today’s challenge is to provide high-level programming concepts without s- ri?cing e?ciency. This is only possible by carefully designing for those concepts and by providing supportive programming environments that facilitate program development and tuning.
