GPU Computing Gemsseries was developed in collaboration with NVIDIA, the world leader in visual and parallel computing. Graphics processing units (GPUs), which were invented by NVIDIA, have revolutionized data computation and are playing a key role in enabling leading researchers and academics to drive
the next wave of scientific discovery. The
GPU Computing Gemsseries will provide practical techniques and real-world examples straight from the leading minds in GPU-based research, demonstrating how new parallel computing techniques can be harnessed within different domains to enable new scientific breakthroughs.
GPU Computing Gems: Emerald Edition is the first volume in the series, and is available today from key book retailers and e-tailers. Visit
http://mkp.com/gpu-computing-gems for more information.
Computational scientists increasingly utilize GPUs for computational-intensive applications to achieve dramatic improvements in processing power, efficiency and power consumption. The challenge for developers in the new arena of scientific research is learning how to program systems that effectively use these concurrent processors to achieve these goals, and
GPU Computing Gems was created to provide real-world tips and guidance to assist researchers. Each chapter presents techniques used in leading research, designed to be accessible to others in multiple fields and disciplines, allowing knowledge to cross-pollinate across the GPU spectrum.
GPU Computing Gems: Emerald Edition will focus on how GPU computing can be applied to:
Emerging Data-Intensive Applications
Electronic Design Automation
Ray Tracing and Rendering
Video and Image Processing
Signal and Audio Processing
Editor-in-Chief Wen-mei W. Hwu, the Walter J. ("Jerry") Sanders III-Advanced Micro Devices Endowed Chair in Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Coordinated Science Laboratory of the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has assembled the leading researchers in parallel programming and gathered their solutions and experiences in one volume under the guidance of expert editors.
The second volume, titled
GPU Computing Gems: Jade Edition, will also be edited by Wen-mei W. Hwu, and will gather experts from eight critical GPU computing domains:
Programming Tools and Libraries
Interactive Physics Simulation and AI for Games and Entertainment
Jade Edition will be published in
June 2011. Both titles are part of
Applications of GPU Computing series. Additional books will follow in 2011 and beyond to help researchers and developers leverage GPUs to improve application speed and efficiency.
