To identify which codes you want within a chapter, click on a
"Chapter" which links to a README file showing which codes are
available, and their descriptions. Download a wanted code by clicking

Chapter 1, basics (exercise only). This is mostly hardware
information. This is mostly hardware information and there is only
a link to one exercise.
Chapter 2 , applications. This chapter contains both
theoretical discussions of most of the applications from
the book and code examples to illustrate these.
Chapter 3 , SIMD programming. The examples in this
chapter are of vectorization and its PC equivalents,
either SSE2 (Intel Pentium III or Pentium 4) or
Altivec (Apple/Motorola G-4 or G-5 processors).
There are several examples to illustrate these.
Chapter 4 , shared memory programming. The examples
in this chapter are of multiple CPU programming on
shared memory machines. For example, the HP9000
Superdome, or NEC supercomputers.
Chapter 5 , MIMD or distributed memory programming. The
examples in this chapter are mostly of message passing using MPI,
some via PBLAS, BLACS, and PETSc.
