Parallel processing has been developed as an effective technology in modern computers to meet the demand for higher performance, lower cost and accurate results in real-life applications. Modern computers have powerful and extensive software packages. To analyze the development of the performance of computers, first we have to understand the basic development of hardware and software. Modern computers evolved after the introduction of electronic components. High mobility electrons in electronic computers replaced the operational parts in mechanical computers.

Parallel computing is a type of computation where many calculations or the execution of processes are carried out simultaneously. There are several different forms of parallel computing: bit-level , instruction-level , data , and task parallelism. Parallelism has long been employed in high-performance computing , but has gained broader interest due to the physical constraints preventing frequency scaling. Parallel computing is closely related to concurrent computing —they are frequently used together, and often conflated, though the two are distinct: it is possible to have parallelism without concurrency such as bit-level parallelism , and concurrency without parallelism such as multitasking by time-sharing on a single-core CPU. In contrast, in concurrent computing, the various processes often do not address related tasks; when they do, as is typical in distributed computing , the separate tasks may have a varied nature and often require some inter-process communication during execution.
The most exciting development in parallel computer architecture is the convergence of traditionally disparate approaches on a common machine structure. This book explains the forces behind this convergence of shared-memory, message-passing, data parallel, and data-driven computing architectures. It then examines the design issues that are critical to all parallel architecture across the full range of modern design, covering data access, communication performance, coordination of cooperative work, and correct implementation of useful semantics. It not only describes the hardware and software techniques for addressing each of these issues but also explores how these techniques interact in the same system. Examining architecture from an application-driven perspective, it provides comprehensive discussions of parallel programming for high performance and of workload-driven evaluation, based on understanding hardware-software interactions. David Culler led the Berkeley Network of Workstations NOW project, which sparked the current commercial revolution in high-performance clusters.

- Нам нужно установить разницу между этими элементами. - Он повернулся к бригаде своих помощников. - Кто знает, какая разница между этими элементами. На лицах тех застыло недоумение. - Давайте же, ребята. -сказал Джабба.
Иначе Танкадо не отдал бы ключ. Какой идиот станет делать на кольце надпись из произвольных букв. Фонтейн свирепым взглядом заставил его замолчать. - Вы меня слышите? - вмешался Беккер, чувствуя себя неловко.
