This book provides a unified presentation of the basic concepts of shared memory application programming, underlining the universality of these concepts and discussing the way they are declined in major programming environments. The book focuses on the high level parallel and concurrency patterns that commonly occur in real applications, and explores useful programming idioms, pitfalls and best practices that are largely independent of the underlying programming environment.
