Book: Many-Core Computing

I am delighted to announce the publication of my latest edited book, "Many-Core Computing: Hardware and Software", edited by myself and Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi, and published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (ISBN: 978-1-78561-582-5). It is written for researchers, engineers, designers, architects and managers (from academic research and industry), and advanced students in Computer, Information and Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Description: Computing has moved away from a focus on performance-centric serial computation, instead towards energy-efficient parallel computation. This provides continued performance increases without increasing clock frequencies, and overcomes the thermal and power limitations of the dark-silicon era. As the number of parallel cores increases, we transition into the many-core computing era. There is considerable interest in developing methods, tools, architectures and applications to support many-core computing. The primary aim of this edited book is to provide a timely and coherent account of the recent advances in many-core computing research. Starting with programming models, operating systems and their applications; the authors present runtime management techniques, followed by system modelling, verification and testing methods, and architectures and systems. The book ends with some examples of innovative applications.

The book contains 22 chapters contributed by experts from around the globe, spanning the hardware and software challenges in this exciting research area:
