Desktop Grid Computing presents common techniques used in numerous models, algorithms, and tools developed during the last decade to implement desktop grid computing. These techniques enable the solution of many important sub-problems for middleware design, including scheduling, data management, security, load balancing, result certification, and fault tolerance. The book's first part covers the initial ideas and basic concepts of desktop grid computing. The second part explores challenging current and future problems. Each chapter presents the sub-problems, discusses theoretical and practical issues, offers details about implementation and experiments, and includes references to further reading and notes. One of the first books to give a thorough and up-to-date presentation of this topic, this resource describes various approaches and models as well as recent trends that underline the evolution of desktop grids. It balances the theory of designing desktop grid middleware and architecture with applications and real-world deployment on large-scale platforms.

Review quote

I think that this book is a necessity-a necessity for researchers, teachers, students, and for people concerned by this topic in the industry. ... I hope that readers of this book will feel the extraordinary freedom that researchers in desktop grids or volunteer computing enjoy. I hope that students will engage themselves in this research domain and continue to reinvent it. -Franck Cappello, Co-Director, INRIA-Illinois Joint Laboratory on PetaScale Computing
