Hi Marcello,

Welcome, and first of all, let me congratulate you on getting out a book that seems so interesting and necessary, this kind of book makes me really excited. It must have to be a lot of work to get it done.

Does any of the algorithms in the book are for elastic/cloud computing?

Looking forward to getting this book.

Best regards,
Nestor

Hi Nestor, thanks a lot for your message and your warm welcome!
I hope the book will live up to your expectations It was, indeed, a loooooooot of work, it took me some 5 years to write it, from the first pitch to the editor to the printed version.

So... most of the book abstracts the environment/computational model, so it doesn't address specifically cloud computing. Chapter 13 is the exception, because it focuses on distributed computing and MapReduce, in particular discussing distributed versions of 3 clustering algorithms.

If you'd like to read more about algorithms in elastic/cloud computing, I totally suggest this book: https://www.manning.com/books/algorithms-and-data-structures-for-massive-datasets
Maybe just check the ToC to see if the topics match what you'd like to read, but other than that, you can count on the book to be really well written.
