Patterns for Parallel Software Design presents a pattern-oriented software architecture approach to parallel software design, this is, designing parallel software based on existing design knowledge. A new way of managing and exploiting existing design knowledge for designing parallel programs, this approach leads to parallel software systems that are often better designed, with features that are modular, adaptable, understandable, and evolvable. For any programmers and developers working in an O-O environment looking to understand the issues involved when parallelizing an algorithm, Patterns for Parallel Software Design is essential reading.
