I hope that readers will learn to use the full expressibility and power of OpenMP. This book should provide an excellent introduction to beginners, and the performance section should help those with some experience who want to push OpenMP to its limits.(David J. Kuck, Intel Fellow, Software and Solutions Group, and Director, Parallel and Distributed Solutions, Intel Corporation)
The advent of readily-available inexpensive multi-core processors has made parallel programming more important and more accessible than ever before. OpenMP is a popular way to write parallel programs, and this book makes OpenMP knowledge available to the average programmer in an understandable, easy-to-apply fashion, while still providing information for those who wish to dive more deeply into the subject.(Larry Meadows, CEO, the OpenMP ARB)
