Overview


MPI, the Message Passing Interface, is a standard and portable library of communications subroutines for parallel programming designed to function on a wide variety of parallel computers. It is useful on both parallel computers, such as IBM's SP2, the Cray ResearchT3D, and the Connection Machine, as well as networks of workstations. Written by five of the principal creators of the latest MPI standard MPI: The Complete Reference is an annotated manual for the latest 1.1 version of the standard that illuminates the more advanced and subtle features of MPI. It can be read in conjunction with the companion tutorial volume, Using MPI: Portable Parallel Programming with the Message-Passing Interface, by William Gropp, Ewing Lusk, and Anthony Skjellum.

MPI: The Complete Reference is the only source that covers such advanced issues in parallel computing and programming as true portability, deadlock, high-performance message passing, and libraries for distributed and parallel computing. The annotations provide numerous illustrative programming examples and delve into even the most esoteric features or consequences of the standard. They explain why certain design choices were made, how users should use the interface, and how implementors should construct their own version of MPI.
