Professional Multicore Programming: Design and Implementation for C++ Developers presents the basics of multicore programming in a simple, easy-to-understand manner so that you can easily apply the concepts to your everyday projects. Learn the fundamentals of programming for multiprocessor and multithreaded architecture, progress to multi-core programming and eventually become comfortable with programming techniques that otherwise can be difficult to understand. Anticipate the pitfalls and traps of concurrency programming and synchronization before you encounter them yourself by finding them outlined in this indispensable guide to multicore programming.

Cameron Hughes is a professional software developer. He is a software engineer at CTEST Laboratories and a staff programmer/analyst at Youngstown State University. With over 15 years as a software developer, Cameron Hughes has been involved in software development efforts of all sizes, from business and industrial applications to aerospace design and development projects. Cameron is the designer of the Cognopaedia and is currently project leader on the GRIOT project that runs on the Pantheon at CTEST Laboratories. The Pantheon is a 24 node multicore cluster that is used in the development of multithreaded search engine and text extraction programs.
Tracey Hughes is a senior graphics programmer at CTEST Laboratories, where she develops knowledge and information visualization software. Tracey Hughes is the lead designer for the M.I.N.D, C.R.A.I.G, and NOFAQS projects that utilize epistemic visualization at CTEST Laboratories. She regularly contributes to Linux development software efforts. She is also a team member on the GRIOT project.. Cameron and Tracey Hughes are also the authors of six books on software development, multithreaded, and parallel programming: Parallel and Distributed Programming Using C (Addison Wesley, 2003), Linux Rapid Application Development (Hungry Minds, 2000), Mastering the Standard C++ Classes (Wiley, 1999), Object - Oriented Multithreading Using C (Wiley, 1997), Collection and Container Classes in C++ (Wiley, 1996), and Object - Oriented I/O Using C Iostreams (Wiley, 1995).
