Written by a leading authority on parallel processing system software design, this volume describes the logical design of state-of-the-art operating systems for both massively parallel computer architectures and massively parallel applications. It focuses on the systems software for organizing and structuring such large scale architectures, rather than on algorithms that implement specific system features. Topics covered include: functional decomposition, system composition, operating principles, transient objects, class ensemble and system abstractions.
