Data Parallel Programming Using MPL
Introductory Lectures on Parallel-Computing CD-ROM (1996)
  • Amit Jain, Boise State University

Eight invited lectures span three areas of parallel computing: programming languages, algorithms and research topics. Transparencies used during the lectures are synchronized with the voice of the speaker. Additional interactive materials include animation, programs, software, the code for building the Parallaxis-III compiler and information on how to get the NESL compiler.
