An Introduction to Parallel Programming, Second Edition presents a tried-and-true tutorial approach that shows students how to develop effective parallel programs with MPI, Pthreads and OpenMP.
As the first undergraduate text to directly address compiling and running parallel programs on multi-core and cluster architecture, this second edition carries forward its clear explanations for designing, debugging and evaluating the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs.
In edition, this new edition includes coverage of accelerators via new content on GPU programming and heterogeneous programming. New and improved user-friendly exercises teach student how to compile, run and modify example programs.
- Takes a tutorial approach, starting with small programming examples and building progressively to more challenging examples
- Focuses on designing, debugging and evaluating the performance of distributed and shared-memory programs
- Explains how to develop parallel programs using MPI, Pthreads and OpenMP programming models
- Includes a robust package of online ancillaries for instructors and students
- Provides lecture slides, a solutions manual, downloadable source code and an image bank
Students in undergraduate parallel programming or parallel computing courses designed for the computer science major or as a service course to other departments; professionals with no background in parallel computing

Peter Pacheco received a PhD in mathematics from Florida State University. After completing graduate school, he became one of the first professors in UCLA’s “Program in Computing,” which teaches basic computer science to students at the College of Letters and Sciences there. Since leaving UCLA, he has been on the faculty of the University of San Francisco. At USF Peter has served as chair of the computer science department and is currently chair of the mathematics department.
His research is in parallel scientific computing. He has worked on the development of parallel software for circuit simulation, speech recognition, and the simulation of large networks of biologically accurate neurons. Peter has been teaching parallel computing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels for nearly twenty years. He is the author of Parallel Programming with MPI, published by Morgan Kaufmann Publishers.
