 Publisher's Summary
 In this volume, designed for computational scientists and engineers working on applications requiring the memories and processing rates of largescale parallelism, leading algorithmicists survey their own fielddefining contributions, together with enough historical and bibliographical perspective to permit working one's way to the frontiers. This book is distinguished from earlier surveys in parallel numerical algorithms by its extension of coverage beyond core linear algebraic methods into tools more directly associated with partial differential and integral equations  though still with an appealing generality  and by its focus on practical mediumgranularity parallelism, approachable through traditional programming languages. Several of the authors used their invitation to participate as a chance to stand back and create a unified overview, which nonspecialists will appreciate.
