About the Book
The objectives of book is to provide a framework for learning necessary fundamentals that enable the students for advanced studies in the area of grid computing. The text describes the use of contemporary tools for the development of applications in the area of grid computing. Besides examples, it also provides snapshots for the output of programs for the convenience of students so that they can observe these results and use them in their practices. The textbook is divided in five core parts and thus defines the structure for evaluating effectiveness of learning. The five parts are: Grid, Grid Computing Technologies, Grid Platforms, Grid Implementation and Grid Applications. At the beginning of each part, there is an overview for students about which skills they will be learning and practicing. Each part comprises multiple chapters and every chapter ends with summary and knowledge testing. An extensive list of references has been provided for further study. Finally, the text concludes with glossary.
