Author Simon Marlow walks you through the process with lots of code examples that you can run, experiment with, and extend. Divided into separate sections on Parallel and Concurrent Haskell, this book also includes exercises to help you become familiar with the concepts presented:Express parallelism in Haskell with the Eval monad and Evaluation StrategiesParallelize ordinary Haskell code with the Par monadBuild parallel array-based computations, using the Repa libraryUse the Accelerate library to run computations directly on the GPUWork with basic interfaces for writing concurrent codeBuild trees of threads for larger and more complex programsLearn how to build high-speed concurrent network serversWrite distributed programs that run on multiple machines in a network
