Editorial Reviews


This book marks an important landmark in the theory of distributed systems and I highly recommend it to students and practicing engineers in the fields of operations research and computer science, as well as to mathematicians interested in numerical methods. --L. Mason, IEEE Communications Magazine

This major contribution to the literature belongs on the bookshelf of every scientist with an interest in computational science, directly beside Knuth's three volumes and Numerical Recipes... --A. Nagurney, Int. J. of Supercomputer Appl

This major work of exceptional scholarship summarizes more than three decades of research into general-purpose algorithms for solving systems of equations and optimization problems --W. F. Smyth, Computing Reviews --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book. I agree with much of the editorial review. I have found this book very useful for my work in distributed computation. The authors are thorough and exact in their work and rely heavily on matrix and probabilistic methods for their results. If you are into parallel and distributed algorithms, then this is a must have book.
