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)

Chapter one contains some background information on OpenMP and its applications. You can skip it if you are not interested in this or already know the material.
Chapter two is a brief overview of the features of OpenMP at a high level. It discusses how OpenMP deals with problems that come from the complex memory hierarchy that exists on modern computers.
Chapter three is a good starting point if you know you need OpenMP, know why you need it, and just need to get something going. It discusses a complete OpenMP program in both C and Fortran that uses a couple of OpenMP's most widely used features, plus it explains the basics of the OpenMP syntax. The problem discussed is specifically how to perform a matrix times a vector operation in parallel.
Chapter four is a more complete overview of the OpenMP programming paradigm and it contains many example programs. First the most widely used features are introduced with a focus on those features that enable work to be shared among multiple threads. The scope narrows until the author is down to some of OpenMP's less widely known features. The programs start simple and get more complex as the chapter progresses, always staying within the field of scientific computing.Read more ›
