Georg Hager and Gerhard Wellein have developed a very approachable introduction to high performance computing for scientists and engineers. Their style and description is easy to read and follow. … This book presents a balanced treatment of the theory, technology, architecture, and software for modern high performance computers and the use of high performance computing systems. The focus on scientific and engineering problems makes this both educational and unique. I highly recommend this timely book for scientists and engineers. I believe this book will benefit many readers and provide a fine reference.
