This book presents scheduling models for parallel processing, problems defined on the grounds of certain scheduling models, and algorithms solving the scheduling problems. It also provides helpful generalizations about scheduling models.
This book outlines common misconceptions as well as misunderstandings of the basic laws of physics that have become common in data center environments and can severely hamper both data integrity and performance. It then details possible solutions.
Since the introduction of Hoares’ Communicating Sequential Process (CSP) notation, powerful new tools have transformed CSP into a practical way of describing industrial-sized problems. This book presents the basic CSP knowledge needed to utilize those tools.
