IntroductionHigh-Performance and Scientific Computing is the area that
covers all the levels of the development of software tools for
High-Performance and Scientific Applications, from the numerical and
mathematics expressions, which expose the physics to be computed, until the
implementation of such formulas on parallel computers, through the use of
different parallel programming models and strategies. Programming is the
connection between the theoretical development and the computing of
scientific applications, so it is the vital importance to explain the
different strategies that make the computing of scientific applications
possible. The Scientific Applications are in need of a big computing
capacity, being impossible to simulate those scenarios of interest without
using parallel computers. Lattice-Boltzmann method is one of the most novel
and interesting strategies to deal with Computational Fluid Dynamics
simulations today, due to its inherently characteristics. In the current
literature, there is an important lack of information about those details
related to High Performance Implementation of LBM. Also, multiples books
only focus on numerical details about "pure-LBM" without covering the
different extensions which are widely used and necessary in multiples
applications. The proposed book would focus not only on numerical details
but also on parallel implementations of LBM and its multiple extensions.

ObjectiveThe main objective of the proposed publication is two-fold. While,
there is a tremendous lack of information in the current literature about
what are the efficient and standard implementations of LBM on the current
and upcoming parallel architectures, there is also a big difficulty to find
books that cover the different extensions used on LBM-based solvers. These
extensions are very well known by the community and are necessary and used
for multiple applications. So, the motivation of this book is to cover such
gap, giving to the community the necessary information to develop
efficiently LBM solvers on different areas of interest and computational

Target AudienceStudents, researchers, academics, engineers working on
Computational Fluid Dynamics, High-Performance Computing,
Scientific/Engineering Tools, Numerical/Flow Simulations, etc.
