Abstract. For many applications the classes of parallel programs considered so far are not sufficient. We need parallel programs whose components can synchronize with each other. That is, components must be able to suspend their execution and wait or get blocked until the execution of the other components has changed the shared variables in such a way that a certain condition is fulfilled To   Since the advent of time sharing in the s, designers of concurrent and parallel systems have needed to synchronize the activities of threads of control that share data structures in memory. In recent years, the study of synchronization has gained new urgency with the proliferation of multicore processors, on which even relatively simple user-level programs must frequently r   "To help you understand how to design shared-memory parallel programs to perform and scale well with minimal risk to your sanity." So it's not a book about parallelism in the sense of getting the most out of a distributed system, it's a book in the mechanical-sympathy sense of getting the most out of a single :// Abstract. For many applications we need parallel programs whose components can synchronize with each other, in that they wait or get blocked until the execution of the other components changes the shared variables into a more favourable state. We therefore extend now (in Section ) the program syntax by a synchronization construct, the await-statement introduced in Owicki and Gries [OG76a].

Designing efficient parallel programs requires a lot of experience and we will study a number of typical considerations for this process such as problem partitioning strategies, communication patterns, synchronization, and load balancing.

Although this fork-join model can be useful for solving a variety of problems, it is somewhat tailored for large array-based applications. OpenMP is intended to support programs that will execute correctly both as parallel programs (multiple threads of execution and a full Parallel programs are commonly written using barriers to synchronize parallel processes. Upon reaching a barrier, a processor must stall until all participating processors reach the ://   This book contains our pattern language for parallel programming OpenMP.
