From the Back Cover
Presents a survey of both distributed shared memory (DSM) effortsand commercial DSM systems. Distributed Shared Memory discussesrelevant issues that make DSM concepts one of the most attractiveapproaches for building large-scale, high-performancemultiprocessor systems. The book provides a general introduction tothe DSM field as well as a broad survey of the basic DSM concepts,mechanisms, design issues, and systems.
Distributed Shared Memory: Concepts and Systemsconcentrates on basic DSM algorithms, their enhancements, and theirperformance evaluation. In addition, it details implementationsthat employ DSM solutions at the software and hardware level. Theauthors deliver a research and development reference that providesstate-of-the-art information that will be useful to architects,designers, and programmers of DSM systems.
About the Author
Jelica Protic is currently with the department of computerengineering, School of Electrical Engineering, University ofBelgrade, Serbia, Yugoslaviqa, where she received her BS and MS incomputer engineering in 1987 and 1994, respectively. From 1987 to1990 she was with the LOLA Institute, where she has been involvedin a project of networking programmable logical controllers using aDSM-like paradigm. Shared-memory multiprocessors, distributedcomputing, local area networks, and system software in general areher current research interests. Distributed shared memory is herprimary field of interest; together with the same coauthors shepresented several preconference tutorials on this subject, and sheis currently in the final phase of finishing her PhD thesis in thisfield.

Milo Tomasevic is currently with the department of computerengineering, School of Electrical Engineering, University ofBelgrade, Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia. He received his BS inelectrical engineering, and MS and PhD in computer engineering,from the University of Belgrade, in 1980, 1984, and 1992,respectively. Previously he was with the Pupin Institute, Belgrade,where he was involved in several large research projects. His PhDresearch dealt with the Cache coherence problem in shared-memorymultiprocessors. His current research interests cover computerarchitecture, especially parallel and distributed systems. He hasreceived awards for some of his conference papers.

Veljko Milutinovic (Senior Member, IEEE) received the PhD. Degreefrom the University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1982. He has beenon the faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering, Universityof Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia since 1990. Prior to that, he was afaculty member of the School of Electrical Engineering at PurdueUniversity, West Lafayette, Indiana. His R&D results include acommercial 16-node MISD machine for DFT processing developed atIMP, the architecture of an early 200-MHz RISC microprocessor forRCA, several multimedia PC-oriented multiprocessor concept for NCR,and several DSM system-level solutions for Encore. He has beenactively researching distributed shared memory computing since theearly 1990s, when he was a part of the team that developed a boardthat turns a personal computer into a DSM node based on thereflective memory approach. He has authored more than 50 papers inIEEE periodicals and presented more than 200 invited lecturesworldwide. His work has been extensively referenced in textbooks oncomputer architectures.

The only problem is that the book does not mention the articles published after 1997. But comprehensive discussion helped me understand later research.
