Software, Environments, and Tools 21
Parallel MATLAB for Multicore and Multinode Computers is the first book on parallel MATLAB and the first parallel computing book focused on the design, code, debug, and test techniques required to quickly produce well-performing parallel programs.
MATLAB is currently the dominant language of technical computing with one million users worldwide, many of whom can benefit from the increased power offered by inexpensive multicore and multinode parallel computers. MATLAB is an ideal environment for learning about parallel computing, allowing the user to focus on parallel algorithms instead of the details of implementation.
Parallel MATLAB for Multicore and Multinode Computers
• covers more parallel algorithms and parallel programming models than any other parallel programming book due to the succinctness of MATLAB and
• presents a “hands-on” approach with numerous example programs. Wherever possible, the examples are drawn from widely known and well-documented parallel benchmark codes representative of many real applications.
This book is intended for professional scientists and engineers, as well as undergraduate or graduate students, who use MATLAB. It is suitable as either the primary book in a parallel computing class or as a supplementary text in a numerical computing class or a computer science algorithms class.

About the Author
Jeremy Kepner is a senior technical staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. His research focuses on the development of advanced libraries for the application of massively parallel computing to a variety of data intensive signal processing problems on which he has published many articles. Jeremy is most proud of the opportunity he has had to be the principal architect, principal investigator, or otherwise co-lead several very talented teams. These teams have produced a number of innovative technologies that have broken new ground in parallel computing.
