The volume is part of a series on advances in High Performance Computing with contributors and editors coming from a varied international background. Previous titles in the series concentrated mainly on high performance engineering applications.

The book is organized in three parts: The first three chapters address issues in the general area of parallel/grid computing. The next seven chapters deal with various algorithms for systolic arrays. The final two chapters cover algorithms and applications for neural networks. With such a wide range of subjects covered and with most chapters requiring some domain-specific background, there is bound to be a concern that the focus of the book is diluted. Concentrating on just systolic arrays would have made the volume an excellent background reference. The other two sections on their own do not cover enough material to satisfy their respective target audiences and would be better served...
