Summary 
As scientific technology becomes increasingly more sophisticated, numerical analysts, mathematicians, and engineers have to solve larger and larger problems, necessitating the use of parallel computers. This book presents an uptodate exposition of the current state of the art of numerical methods for solving ordinary equations in a parallel computing environment. Although the main focus is on problems of initial value type, boundary value problems and partial differentiation equations are also covered. Other chapters are devoted to the parallel solution of linear systems of equation, existing sequential differential equation methods, and the behavior of a parallel code based on wave relaxation.
