Anonymous Comments: Comments about the book that should be made anonymously can be submitted here. Anonymous email goes to the two authors via UW's anonymiser and cannot be traced. If it is possible to send attributed email, that is preferred, because it allows a dialog between the authors and the commentator. Send mail to snyder at cs and lin at cs.utexas.edu.

Textbook: The text used in this course will be a draft of a book I'm writing titled Principles of Parallel Programming. That book is now available at a copy center near campus. In order to be prepared for the first lecture, Chapter 1 of the book is now posted on the web.

In chapter 2 of the text book, some of the images were not properly formatted. The image of a BlueGene/L node from page 38 can be found here, and the image of the BlueGene/L communication networks from page 39 can be found here.

The book draft for the course is available at:
