For the next four weeks you can read a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming devoted to OpenMP - the threading/parallel programming API for C++/C.
Springer regularly provides free access for a limited period to one of its academic journals and for the next four weeks you can read a special issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming devoted to OpenMP.
The October 2010 issue of the International Journal of Parallel Programming is a double issue (Volume 38, Numbers 5-6). It is a Special Issue with seven articles on the topic of OpenMP - the threading/parallel programming API for C++/C.
Guest editors Matthias S Muller and Eduard Ayguade explain in their introductory article that:
OpenMP is a portable, scalable programming model that provides a simple and flexible interface for developing shared-memory parallel applications in Fortran, C and C++.
The six articles thay have selected on the topic are:
- Comparison of OpenMP 3.0 and Other Task Parallel Frameworks on Unbalanced Task Graphs
- Semantic-Aware Automatic Parallelization of Modern Applications Using High-Level Abstractions
- Productivity and Performance Portability of the OpenMP 3.0 Tasking Concept When Applied to an Engineering Code Written in Fortran 95
- Performance Evaluation of Mixed-Mode OpenMP/MPI Implementations
- ForestGOMP: An Efficient OpenMP Environment for NUMA Architectures
- Extending OpenMP to Survive the Heterogeneous Multi-Core Era
All the papers are downloadable as PDFs and you can then print them out, read and search them from your PC or load them into your mobile ebook reader.
But if you leave it beyond the free period you will have to pay for access.
