“It will be useful not only to researchers in the fields of applied mathematics and computer science (CS), but also to researchers in other fields who want to develop parallel algorithms and applications. … Overall, this unique book combines the characteristics of a teaching tool and a reference. … The comprehensive bibliography, helpful notation sections, and clear style make it a valuable resource for scientists and engineers in other fields too, including computational physics and computational chemistry.” (Alexander Izanov, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2010)
“The book presents in a systematical way the interdisciplinary subject of scheduling for parallel processing. … The text is addressed to researchers in parallel computing and applied mathematics. It can be used for advanced lectures in parallel computing. The algorithms that are presented may be interesting for developers of parallel applications. Many of them are based on heuristics for solving hard combinatorial problems.” (Dana Petcu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1187, 2010)
