PARALLEL COMPUTING ON THE ROAD TO EXASCA Hardback
by H. LEATHER
Part of the ADVANCES IN PARALLEL COMPUTING series
As predicted by Gordon E. Moore in 1965, the performance of computer processors increased at an exponential rate.
Nevertheless, the increases in computing speeds of single processor machines were eventually curtailed by physical constraints.
This led to the development of parallel computing, and whilst progress has been made in this field, the complexities of parallel algorithm design, the deficiencies of the available software development tools and the complexity of scheduling tasks over thousands and even millions of processing nodes represent a major challenge to the construction and use of more powerful parallel
