[Beowulf] Looking for references for parallelization and optimization

If you are looking for more theoretical approaches, there is always John Reif’s book:
John Reif (ed), “Synthesis of Parallel Algorithms”, published by Morgan Kaufmann,<http://www.mkp.com/index.htm> Spring, 1993.
It is a weighty tome and perhaps one of the more theoretical books on parallel codes that I have read.

Dear Micha,

we are working on a course on the subject for Novosibirsk University. There are several widely used books that we use as reference material for the optimization part of the course. In particular,
 * Stefan Goedecker, Adolfy Hoisie, "Performance optimization of numerically intensive codes", SIAM, 2000.
 * Kewin Wadleigh, Isom Crawford, "Software optimization for High Performance Computing", HP Professional Books, 2000

We would like to start with more theoretical approaches, like an introduction to dependency graph analysis, asymptotic analysis of algorithms and then proceed with specific optimization techniques like the ones described in the above books.

Please compile a list from the responses you will receive from Beowulf community. I would definitely find such a list very helpful.

Best regards,
