Dear Professor,

As someone who teaches using the NVIDIA CUDA technology, you might be interested in adopting Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach, a new textbook written by David Kirk and Wen-mei Hwu and published by Morgan Kaufmann.  This important and timely new book addresses one of the key educational challenges facing computer science today: how to teach the new and essential skill of programming massively parallel processors.

The first text of its kind, Programming Massively Parallel Processors: A Hands-on Approach will teach your students the basic concepts of parallel programming and GPU architecture.  This text will provide your students with the hands-on skills they need to work in an industry that has moved to multi-core processors. 

Key Features of Programming Massively Parallel Processors
  • From day one, your students will use real-world case studies and actual software development tools (CUDA and OpenCL) to program massively parallel processors effectively.
  • The computational thinking techniques your students learn will enable them to think about problems in ways that are amenable to high-performance parallel computing.
  • Your students will learn how to achieve both high-performance and high-reliability using the CUDA programming model as well as OpenCL.
ISBN: 9780123814722 | 256 pages | Paperback | List Price: $69.95 | Date: 28 January 2010
