Looking to take full advantage of multi-core processors with concurrent programming ? As one of the few resources to focus on implementing algorithms in the shared-memory model of multi-core processors, rather than just on theoretical models or distributed-memory architectures, The Art of Concurrency provides the knowledge and hands-on experience you need. You'll get detailed explanations and usable samples to help you transform algorithms from serial to parallel code, along with advice and analysis to steer you clear of mistakes.

With CPUs growing in power by adding additional core as opposed to just getting "faster", learning how to take advantage of parallel programming is a must. The book "The Art of Concurrency: A Thread Monkey's Guide to Writing Parallel Applications" by Clay Breshears works great as a reference and guide for determining when parallelization may be possible, how it could be done, and what to look out for. The book introduces the reader to parallel programming with a set of useful rules and guidelines to follow to plan for optimizing algorithms by distributing workloads through concurrent programming.
