This book was written to help you use Intel Parallel Studio XE to write programs that use the latest features of multicore CPUs. With the help of this book, you should be able to produce code that is fast, safe, and parallel. In addition to helping you write parallel code, some chapters cover other optimization topics that you can u
se in your code development,regardless of whether or not you are developing parallel code. Most of the chapters include hands-on activities that willhelp you apply the techniques being explained.
Who this book is for
