Description

High
Performance Software with Intel Compilers, Libraries and Platforms
illustrates how dramatic
performance improvements can be achieved by using the Intel compiler tools and
performance libraries. It is written for developers working in advanced
applications such as financial modeling who need to leverage the power of
modern multi-core Intel processors.

This book is written for developers (and other technology specialists) working in advanced
applications such as financial modeling and who wish to leverage the power of
modern multi-core Intel processors--as an example--in order to implement high performance
derivatives pricing engines. The purpose of the book is to illustrate how dramatic
performance improvements can be achieved by using the Intel compiler tools and
performance libraries.

The book emphasizes the case study approach where the examples
provided in the second part of the book are entirely inspired from real world
scenarios.
