Elsevier, provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, has released Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor High Performance Programming (ISBN: 9780124104143), a book authored by two Intel evangelists, Jim Jeffers and James Reinders. The book has also been selected for Intel’s Recommended Reading List, an industry resource for the most pertinent technical books for professional developers.

‘Continuing education is critical to developers of products that incorporate the latest technologies. Based on increasing requests from the worldwide developer community, Intel has assembled a list of the books that complement the industry’s most important technical topics which now includes the new Jeffers and Reinders book, Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor High Performance Programming,’ explained Javier Leija, manager of industry education at Intel Corporation.

Benefitting software engineers, scientific researchers, and high performance and supercomputing developers in need of high-performance computing resources, the book provides a guide to:

  • Exploiting the parallel power of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor for high-performance computing;
  • Presenting best practices for portable, high-performance computing and a familiar and proven threaded, scalar-vector programming model;
  • Including simple but informative code examples that explain the unique aspects of this new highly parallel and high performance computational product; and
  • Covering wide vectors, many cores, many threads and high bandwidth cache/memory architecture.

The book, published by Elsevier under the Morgan Kaufmann imprint, is available electronically and in print and can be purchased on the Elsevier Store, as well as on ScienceDirect.
